Scott Adkins (The Expendables 2) and Michael Jai White (Spawn, Black Dynamite) have joined the international cast of Guillaume Lubrano’s sci-fi TV series “Metal Hurlant Chronicles.”
Rutger Hauer (“Blade Runner”), Joe Flanigan (“Stargate Atlantis) and James Marsters (“Buffy”) will also star in the TV show’s first season, says Variety.
“Metal Hurlant Chronicles” is based on the French sci-fi and fantasy comics anthology that was published in the U.S. as “Heavy Metal.”
Earlier this year, Universal Pictures Germany picked up home video and VOD rights for the first two seasons (comprising 12 half-hours). Sony Pictures Television nabbed the series for distribution in various European territories, notably Germany, Austria, German-speaking Switzerland and Luxembourg via its pay TV network.
The first season will be delivered in April and the second will bow in November 2012. Each episode will adapt stories from the original graphic novels.
Created by comic artists Jean Giraud (aka Moebius) and Philippe Druillet in 1974, “Metal Hurlant” became a sci-fi phenom in the 1980s.
