Yeah yeah yeah … I know GEMINI RISING is a sci-fi flick, but there’s one good (make that GREAT) reason I’m covering it: The film stars Lance Henriksen!! Henricksen is a legend in the genre and a horror icon in every sense of the word. Well the first trailer and a few stills have dropped for GEMINI RISING. Check out the press release and plot crunch:
Gemini Rising explores the possibilities of alien technology when used by the wrong people. In the darkness of space an alien spacecraft is discovered. An underground experiment back on Earth uses this technology to create an army of drones. Director Dana Schroeder’s sci-fi thriller brings both humanity and nefarious plans together in the film’s first trailer.
In the trailer Colonel Cencula (Lance Henriksen) finds his plans going awry when an agent decides to foil the plot. Lisa Morgan (Amy Hathaway) hopes to intervene before disaster arises. Meanwhile other characters are caught in the Colonel’s path of destruction, including a brainwashed doctor played by Dave Vescio.
The director is Dana Schroeder, and producers are Peter Tunney, Fabian Winkelmann, Cyril O’Reilly, and John Rogers. Other co-stars include Brian Krause, John Savage, and Art Evans.
Lisa Morgan is an ex-homeland security agent and highly competent martial artist who gets drawn into the nefarious plans of the egomaniacal Colonel Cencula. He runs a top secret research facility, buried in an extinct volcano on an uncharted tropical island. Cencula plans to use alien technology to build an army of drone soldiers. Morgan becomes an unwitting accomplice to the rogue Colonel’s plans until she discovers the true nature of the research. She must stop him from succeeding at all cost.
