Syfy Nabs the Metal Hurlant Chronicles - Dread Central
We've been talking about the "Metal Hurlant Chronicles" around these parts for what feels like forever, and finally we have some good news... We'll finally be able to see it too!
According to Variety, Syfy has acquired the first two seasons of the French science-fiction/action series "Metal Hurlant Chronicles."
Helmed by Guillaume Lubrano, the English-language show was produced by We Productions and is co-produced by Belvision and Nexus. “Metal Hurlant Chronicles” is based on the French sci-fi and fantasy comics anthology published in the U.S. as “Heavy Metal” and created by comic artists Jean Giraud (a.k.a. Moebius) and Philippe Druillet in 1974.
“Metal Hurlant” became a hugely popular sci-fi phenomenon in the 1980s and inspired the 1981 animated film Heavy Metal. A flurry of international actors, including John Rhys-Davies (The Lord of the Rings), Michael Biehn (The Terminator), Jimmy Jean-Louis (“Heroes”), Scott Adkins (The Expendables 2), James Marsters (“Buffy”), and Michael Jai White (“Black Dynamite”), have joined the cast of the second season, which will premiere on France 4.
Syfy will launch the series’ first season in April.
