UPDATED AUG 29: Epic Pictures Releasing has set Oct 4 for the release of Yusry A Halim’s action adventure, which will screen in 3D in select theatres.
In addition Universal Pictures International Entertainment has acquired UK, Nordic region, Australia/New Zealand and additional territories for Vikingdom.
The KRU Studios production stars Dominic Purcell of Prison Break fame alongside Conan Stevens, Craig Fairbrass, Jon Foo and Natassia Malthe.
Shireen Hashim produced with Norman Halim and Epic Pictures Releasing CEO Patrick Ewald serving as executive producers. Epic Pictures Group co-head Shaked Berenson and Edry Halim are co-executive producers.
Vikingdom tells the story of Eirick who battles from hell and beyond to retrieve the mystical artifact Odin’s Horn before Thor and his army can unleash its powers to conquer the world.
“Vikingdom combines the energy of Ironclad with the visual style of 300 or Spartacus”, said Ewald. “With the massive and growing interest in shows like HBO’S Game Of Thrones and The History Channel’s Vikings, audiences will get what they want when it comes to historical fantasy and action.”
