Not to be downhearted the Brothers Strause are working on their next film, War of the Ages.
Greg Strause explained the plot.
“War of the Ages is going to be the next news item. Basically, an ancient artifact is uncovered, time is shattered and the seven greatest war leaders in history have to battle each other out. It’s sort of like The Lord of the Rings meets Gladiator. You have Napoleon vs. Julius Caesar vs. Attila the Hun vs. Genghis Khan vs. Alexander vs. Hannibal. So, there you go. It’s going to be in 3D and it’s a big sword-and-sandal epic.”
Sounds like a Doctor Who episode or the next Bill and Ted film.
Like Skyline they are going to make a trailer before the film is shot.
“We just finished up the script and we have just finished the trailer we shot for it. It’s sort of the same way we did Skyline, except this is a much, much bigger film. In Skyline, we shot a 90-second trailer to get everybody excited about the movie before we sold it. We’re kind of following in the same footsteps, but learning from the experience and pushing forward.”
Like Skyline this has the makings of a great popcorn movie. I just hope the finished product is better than Skyline.
