Quartet voicing roles in 'Godkiller' film
Lance Henriksen among actors in comic book-based picLance Henriksen, Bill Moseley, Justin Pierre and Davey Havok are lending their voices to writer-director Matt Pizzolo's film version of "Godkiller" for producer Halo-8 Entertainment.
Based on a comic book Pizzolo created with illustrator Anna Muckcracker, the adaptation is described as an "illustrated film" mixing elements of anime, radio drama, video games and comics.
Halo-8 will unveil a preview clip Saturday during the "Indie Films and Comics" panel at Comic-Con International's Wondercon in San Francisco.
Halo-8 intends to release limited-edition, serialized, shortform DVDs to comic book stores through the spring and summer before releasing the full-length feature theatrically in the fall.
Set in the future after an economic collapse, a nuclear holy war and an alien invasion, "Godkiller" follows orphan Tommy as he searches for a new heart for his ill sister, Lucy.
"When we decided to make an anime adaptation of the comic book, I couldn't see how a traditional animated approach would do justice to Anna's incredibly lush and detailed illustrations," Pizzolo said. "It made perfect sense to adapt the medium to suit her art, rather than vice versa."
