Elliott, Malthe: Sci Fi knights in white satin


Sci Fi Channel has given the green light to a miniseries starring David James Elliott.

Natassia Malthe also has been cast in the four-hour mini, tentatively titled "Mirabilis."

The mini revolves around four knights who must save their great land of Mirabilis.

Elliott will play John, a knight and wandering warrior avenging the killing of his family. Malthe will play Perfidia, another knight who also is John's love interest.

Sam Egan ("Jeremiah") wrote the script. The mini will be produced by Reunion Pictures, with RHI Entertainment and Industry Entertainment attached. RHI will distribute internationally.

Elliott, who next appears in the film "Lovesick" is repped by Gersh and McGowan Management.

Malthe recently appeared in ABC Family's "Fallen." (partialdiff)
