Although Sean Patrick Flanery is best known for upholding truth and justice as one of the Boondock Saints, the actor will make the big leap into space as THR reports he and actress Louise Linton are joining the independent science fiction film Scavengers. The story follows crews of space scavengers competing for supplies, energy and treasure. When the crew of the Revelator, led by Emerson (Linton), comes across the alien-created Chaos Generator, they must fight to keep it out of the hands of her former shipmate, the sinister Captain Jekel (Flanery).

Production designer Travis Nicholas Zariwny will make his directorial debut with the film, but he’s got a tough act to follow after such a strong showing recently in indie sci-fi with films like Moon and District 9, so I hope

Louise Linton

 whenever this makes its way to theaters it can live up to sci-fi’s strong return to form. I think there’s going to be more and more interest in indie sci-fi, especially with a low key sci-fi filmmaker like Federico Alvarez gaining huge attention for a film he put online only to be followed by a deal with Sam Raimi’s Ghost House banner.
