‘The Phantom’ comes to SyFy
Posted by GoreMaster Special Effects on October 5, 2009
SyFy has another original miniseries, it’s an adaptation of the Lee Falk comic, The Phantom.
The film, based on the comic, tells the story of Kit Walker, the 21st Phantom, played by Ryan Carnes (General Hospital, Desperate Housewives), with Isabella Rossellini (Blue Velvet, Alias) as the villain, Lithia. Cameron Goodman (Wild ‘N Out) will star as Walker’s love interest, Renny and Sandrine Holt (The L World) as the Phantom’s trusted friend and advisor, Guran.
Fans of the series hoping to get a glimpse of Phantom villian, Rama Singh, will be out of luck as they’ve “reimagined” the Singh Brotherhood leader as Rhatib Singh. No information has been released on whether Rhatib is representing the character Rama for the film or if he’s a relative.
Producers, RHI Entertainment, have provided the following synopsis:
The legendary superhero returns in this modern-day and action packed miniseries event. When Kit Walker (Ryan Carnes) learns of his father’s death, the adventurous young man inherits the mantle of his superhero father. As the new Phantom, the 21st in the Walker line, Kit vows to uphold and honor his ancestors’ creed-to fight crime and injustice throughout the world.
