A while back, we learned that director Albert Pyun was ramping up to shoot TALES OF AN ANCIENT EMPIRE, a pseudo-sequel to THE SWORD AND THE SORCERER (HERE).
This came as quite a surprise, given that the film was promised at the end of SWORD (released back in 1982) and was widely assumed to have been forgotten in the subsequent 27 years.
Nevertheless, TALES began filming December 16 and we have some images from the first and second days of shooting.
From Day 1:
Kevin Sorbo as Aedan
Melissa Ordway as Tanis
Janelle Taylor as Rajan
Inbar Lavi as Alana
Here are some shots from the second day of filming: Sorbo with "Drooler", and Ordway looking for thieves. CLICK TO ENLARGE.
No sign of the three bladed sword yet, but it is in the film & we'll try to nab a shot of it if opportunity allows.
We just received two more images from the set. Sorbo -vs- "Iberian", and Sorbo meeting Ordway. CLICK TO ENLARGE.
