Science Kills in Kevin Sorbo’s New Sci-Fi Actioner
Who doesn’t love parallel Earth stories? “What if’s”, “Elseworlds” — whatever you want to call it, it’s always a blast to see established TV shows take the characters we know and twist them around without worrying about the consequences, since this is just a parallel universe we’re visiting. Star Trek did it quite often, but they always did it well; Stargate SG1 did a couple of them that turned out pretty good, too. But what about a movie based on the parallel world premise? That’s the idea behind Kevin Sorbo’s new sci-fi actioner, “Paradox”.
THR has the plot of “Paradox”:
Sorbo plays a homicide cop on a parallel Earth ruled by magic who investigates a series of murders committed by a previously unseen means: the power of science. Christos Gage and Ruth Fletcher Gage wrote the screenplay based on Arcana’s three-issue limited series written by Christos Gage, who has worked for Marvel and DC Comics.
Sorbo will star, and Brenton Spencer (Stargate: Atlantis) will direct for Legacy Filmworks.
Here’s more about the plot of the three-issue comic book via:
“Paradox” begins with Sean Nault trying to solve a series of homicides, a baffling serious of murder committed by a means he’s not seen before – via science. “With the aid of Lenoir – a member of the ridiculed subculture of ‘pragmatists’ who believe science is more than the stuff of myths and children’ s stories – and the 130 year old sorcerer Winston Churchill, Sean uncovers an apocalyptic plot that will lead him to another dimension – ours – and the realization that, unless he prevents it, both earths could well be destroyed,” explained Gage.
