The Jules Verne classic Mysterious Island gets a cintematic update with...uh...Jules Verne's Mysterious Island, out on DVD on May 29th from Green Apple Entertainment.
As famine and death ravage Richmond, Va., five northern Civil War POWs, including Emmy Award-winner, Pruitt Taylor Vince (AMC's The Walking Dead, JFK, Drive Angry, Constantine) and Lochlyn Munro (Dead Man on Campus, White Chicks), plan a daring escape by hijacking a hot air balloon. Drifting through the night, they wake to find themselves marooned on a desert island … but they're not alone.
Littered with wreckage, the island is home to a cast of survivors who have been lost in space and time, including Abby and Jules Fogg (Susie Arbromeit, Battle: Los Angeles, and Gina Holden, Saw 3-D, Alien vs. Predator), two young women from modern times who become stranded while flying over the Bermuda Triangle.
Forced to defend themselves against vicious pirates, terrifying creatures and a volcano that's ready to blow, they must find a way to survive. Their only hope to escape the island lies with its longest resident, Captain Nemo (W. Morgan Sheppard, Star Trek, Transformers, Gods and Generals). With his help, they craft another plan … But will they make it before the island claims them all forever?
Jules Verne's Mysterious Island is directed by Mark Sheppard (Battlestar Galactica, Supernatural, Firefly, Warehouse 13), who is also the son of star W. Morgan Sheppard. The director even makes a cameo playing a young Nemo.
I have to tell you, cameo shmameo, I want to see this because Pruitt Taylor Vince is in it. That guy can never have enough roles.
