Today Emilie Ullerup (Riese, Sanctuary) “announced” her newest TV movie project by having posted some first look  promo art for her latest project and it’s titled Witchslayer!

I cannot find any other information on any TV movie or otherwise for anything titled Witchslayer. I may be the first site, aside from Emilie’s Facebook account that has anything on it.  The only other thing we do know about Witchslayer is that her co-star is Paul McGillian (Star Trek, TV: Sanctuary, Stargate Atlantis).

My unsubstantiated guess is that this is a Syfy Channel movie production, though I’m not putting bank on that.  (My last guess that it was Paradox was just a wee bit off.)  It could be anything really.  As I find out more info about Witchslayer, I’ll let you know!

UPDATED 6/6/10 1700 hrs:

Kido’s comment points to a Russian link ) that I needed to translate with Google.  Basically, the article dated June 6th, 2010, says that Shannen Doherty was filming a movie in Toronto, Canada based on the novel called Killer Witches, but then the article is updated to say she was removed from Killer Witches (Witchslayer).  It says (Translated) “a film production company engaged Syfy and Comwest.”

If I hit up Shannen Doherty’s Twitter account, she talks about standing around in the mud waiting to shoot.  That she doesn’t know where she’s at, and she also makes note of a costar standing around waiting to shoot, Tim Bitici.

Since the translation is iffy, whether Shannen is on the cast or not, I’m not sure.  If she is, that means we have a cast of 4 in this project for the moment;

  • Emilie Ullerup,
  • Paul McGillion,
  • Shannen Doherty, &
  • Tim Bitici.

We’ll see how this all pans out.  Thanks to KIDO for the pointer!

UPDATE for June 12th, 2010 on Witchslayer:

Cinema Static commenter that goes by the name of Ais added the following info to the comments but I think our informationally gifted friend is totally onto what this movie is all about, so I’m adding it to the bulk of the article so no one misses Ais’s information:  (AIS:  You’ve just become a volunteer citizen contributor to Cinema Static!  Thanks!)

SyFy has a whole set of ‘movies’ based on their own reworking of fairy tales in production. [Cinema Static Editor’s note:  Yes, I touched on the Syfy Fairy Tale movies by in February.  Though they call the movie Hansel, Ais has me convinced that this Witchslayer is that project.  Maybe it’s a production code name.] This movie is apparently the “Hansel and Gretel” movie, judging from an item on Paul McGillion’s official website…

There’re descriptions of Syfy’s various ‘re-imagined’ fairy tale projects available in various places.

CinamaBlend.com has this to say about the “Hansel” movie:

“Hansel — Twenty years after his encounter with the witch, a grown-up Hansel returns to the haunted forest, seeking revenge. But there’s a surprise waiting – his sister Gretel (who he thought had been killed) is the witch’s protégée.”

I just hope the writing exceeds the usual basement-floor low Syfy standards so I’m not faced with making the decision to stop watching or to turn the sound off, yet again.

Regardless of that, it’ll be most excellent to be able to see Emilie’s work again.

Yes, it will be good to see Emilie back at work and we agree about the hope that this isn’t another hokey Syfy Saturday night original movie.

In my opinion Emilie Ullerup made Sanctuary! I quit buying and watching episodes midway through season 2 because it became apparent that she was gone. I am anxiously waiting to see her get the starring role in her own series. Come on SyFy wake up she’s a winner. Listen to the fans.
