October Coast just released a first look at The Time War to a few select sites, and Sci-Fi & Scary was happy to be one of them. Read on for more information on The Time War, due for release in 2018, and enjoy the released stills! A nice bit of circumstance that this is running right after our published interview with Tracey Birdsall about Rogue Warrior: Robot Fighter!
First Look: The Time War
Daniel Logan (Boba Fett from the Star Wars prequels) and Aaron Jacques have joined the cast of The Time War, the next sci-fi actioner from the team behind this Summer’s Rogue Warrior : Robot Fighter.
The film, written/directed by Neil Johnson and starring Tracey Birdsall, features a superlative cast of sci-fi veterans including the aforesaid Logan, Star Trek III’s Stephen Manley and The Hobbit trilogy’s William Kircher. The late Christopher Lee provides narration for the movie.
During World War 2, the Nazis were alleged to be experimenting with Time Travel Technology. What if they were successful?
The Time War shows the consequences of Adolf Hitler traveling through time and re-writing history. Rather than taking a campy-cartoony stance on the notion, The Time War takes a more serious, scientific-based approach to the consequences of time travel and the theoretical multi-verse. As Adolf Hitler starts to re-write his genetics, he learns that cause and effect are not as simple as it may seem on paper. After dealing with multiple versions of himself, his greatest nemesis is his own daughter Dijanne (played by Tracey Birdsall) who takes on his legacy of empire building and creates an army of one, from various versions of herself from across a billion different time lines.
The resulting Time War spans thousands of years and lays waste to the earth following a devastating atomic war. Time travel and rewriting history are heavily complex notions, and Dijanne, daughter of Adolf Hitler, discovers that she is the center of the universal destruction that threatens to extinguish all life from planet earth.
Logan, best known for his portrayal of young Boba Fett from the 2002 film Star Wars: Episode II : Attack of the Clones, will play Mordred, the leader of the Rephaim – genetically modified soldiers created by Adolf Hitler, who are attempting a military coup. Jacques, last seen in Johnson’s Rogue Warrior: Robot Fighter, plays the character Ector.
Film is currently in production USA and UK.
The Time War is due for release 2018.
