AZTECH FORGOTTEN GODS
TO MOVE TO THE BIG SCREENS
A bit of fantasy today, starting with the movie adaptation of upcoming Aztech Forgotten Gods video game simply titled AZTECH. In this revisionist historical telling of Aztec history, European powers never arrived on the
shores of ancient Mesoamerica. The story takes place in a future where the Aztec empire was never conquered, and flourished into a hyper advanced, cutting edge civilization. The Aztec Empire’s capital, Tenochtitlan, has thrived for centuries as a stone metropolis, techno- logically elevated yet heavily rooted in the ways of those indigenous to the land. That is, until supernatural beings suddenly start to converge on the ancient city, duping those who live there by masking themselves as ancient Aztec gods like the Feathered Serpent deity Quetzalcoatl
or Mictlantecuhtli the Lord of the Underworld. Their goal is to enslave the inhabitants. Seeing through their ruse is an unlikely twenty something heroine named Achtli, whose arm has been replaced with a powerful gauntlet-like ancient stone weapon. She leads the opposition and uncovers the mystery behind these beings.

|The video game itself will be launched later this summer|
EPIX' HORROR SF SERIES FROM
ADS EION BAILEY AND HAROLD PERRINEAU AS LEADS
Epix has, meanwhile, set their leads for new sf series simply titled FROM which unravels the mystery of a nightmarish town in middle America that
traps all those who enter. As the unwilling residents fight to keep a sense of normalcy and search for a way out, they must also survive the threats of the surrounding forest – including the terrifying creatures that come out when the sun goes down. Eion Bailey will play Jim Matthews, who, along with his wife, is struggling in the aftermath of a personal tragedy and suddenly finds himself and his family trapped in the town. Harold Perrineau will be Boyd Stevens, the sheriff whose Draconian rules have held the fragile town together, even as he searches for a way to escape this seemingly inescapable nightmare. Stay tuned for additional casting.
