Mike will play the role of “Emperor Elrich”, which is only appropriate for a man of his celebrity stature. A two-time World Fitness Federation “Mr. Universe” and an amazing five times World Fitness Federation “Mr. World”, throughout his illustrious career of seventeen years in film, Mike has graced the silver screen in multiple high-action films such as “Gladiator and BraveHeart” and is currently in filming on three films at once, having just wrapped up recently on the extremely well-received, new James Bond film, “SkyFall”. Mike came into the project through Co-Producer, Kathy Krantz.
Kathy Krantz Stewart, Long Time Sci-fi/Fantasy world Publisher of The Trekker News and Views, and writer for Fangoria and Starlog, and a veritable founder of the Fantasy genre is also a seasoned, veteran of the screen, who, in addition to Co-Producing, will also play three separate very unique character roles in the film. An award-winning screenwriter and actress herself, Kathy was completely enchanted by “Ethyrea” and all of its amazing packaged non-profit plans, and plans to involve the fans.
Ethyrea: Code of the Brethren, coming to theaters worldwide in 2014, is an all new, all original, fantasy adventure series that features celebrity television host and former Ms. World Dawna Lee Heising, recent Life Time Achievement Award Winner, Cylk Cozart, and is rumored to be in talks with one of America’s “sweethearts”
With domestic distribution already guaranteed, this independent blockbuster is a four picture franchise based on the young adult book series, The Order of Ethyrea, from Author Danica Fontaine and Old Line Publishing. One of the freshest, most exciting, and unique concepts to hit Hollywood in a long time, this film franchise is Clash of the Titans meets Lord of the Rings but without gore, foul language, and elements that would keep it from being appropriate for all ages. Family friendly films are important to everyone in the Ethyrea camp.
Danica, who will be a featured Author and Guest on the film panel for Mysticon in Virginia in 2013, and the rest of her team have been being very tight lipped when it comes to their lead actors and top candidates for the position of Director, and Art/Creature Design, as well as about these “secret non-profit plans” they apparently have incorporated into the project. With Casting slated to begin soon, there are still some major announcements to come before it begins.
"We have an amazing amount of momentum and enthusiasm involved with this project. From the bottom to the top, everyone is itching to move into Casting our lead characters, and Directors, and just get started!” says Danica. “And me too! We have some of the wildest and most completely unheard of marketing plans that are going to make this one of the most fun and exciting film experiences of all time. And not just for the cast, and crew, but for the fans, too. We have so many exciting things planned: things that will change a lot of lives for the better. That’s the beauty of this team: the focus of everyone’s life on this team so far is already about making a difference in a manner that counts. Can it be done as an Independent film? I think you are in for a very big surprise!”
Ethyrea will be filmed in some of the most beautiful places on Earth inclusive of Hawaii, Louisiana, Mexico, possibly China or Bulgaria and potentially (fingers crossed) the jewel of the Mediterranean:
Ethyrea: Code of the Brethren, based on the book series, The Order of Ethyrea by author Danica Fontaine, is the first installment in a franchise that revolves around a world in another realm - a realm where every kingdom has mastered the control of an element.
