Hawk the Slayer sequel

Here's something I honestly thought I would never see: a sequel to the deliciously cheesy 1980 fantasy flick HAWK THE SLAYER.

The original sword-and-sorcery tale starred now-familiar character actor John Terry (yes, Jack Shephard's dad on "LOST") as the warrior Hawk, on a quest to free the realm from the reign of his tyrannical brother Voltan (played by Jack Palance at his  scenery-munching finest).

Director Terry Marcel is coming back for Jinga Films' HAWK THE HUNTER, but there will be a new warrior brandishing the Mind-sword: British actor Tom Hardy. Though he may be best known to genre fans as villainous Picard-clone Shinzon in STAR TREK: NEMESIS, Hardy has also appeared in LAYER CAKE, BLACK HAWK DOWN and ROCKnROLLA, and is currently receiving raves for his starring role in the brutal prison movie BRONSON.

The new HAWK saga, budgeted at $10 million, is currently searching for an appropriate Voltan. Meanwhile, you can check out the trailer for the original awesomely awful cult fave B-movie below.

This was my all time favorite movie as a kid. I used to watch this thing religiously. I still have the Original VHS release. I remember jumping around pretending to be Crow the Elf with his super fast arrow shooting awesomeness. If you love 80's scifi/fantasy movies you MUST track this down. Make a party out of it. It is impossible not to adore this movie if youre a fan of the cheese.

IF this sequel does indeed get made they MUST (AND THIS IS A REQUIREMENT) have Crow the Elf in it. Thank

PS: ANTI - That scene in Yor: Hunter from the Future where he uses the Terrordactyl to glide and the 80's synth rock plays is priceless.

Hmm... Never heard of the original before. So is this hoping for a theatrical release or is it heading straight to DVD?
