Like the SyFy Channel’s latest attempt to resurrect Philip Jose Farmer’s “Riverworld” novels into a new ongoing series (see what I did there?), I get the feeling their attempts at bringing back The Ghost Who Walks will be just as unsuccessful. Thus, we have a 4-hour mini-series that will act as a backdoor pilot, premiering later this month on June 20 at 7 p.m. ET/PT on the SyFy Channel. In case you were still not sold on the new Phantom yet, or you wanted to be sure it was something you had no interest in, here are a new gallery of pics from SciFiWire.
Here’s the trailer from last year for those who missed it:
Ryan Carnes stars as Kit Walker, aka the new Phantom. The movie co-stars the lovely Sandrone Holt (“Resident Evil: Apocalypse”) as Guran, Isabella Rossellini as Dr. Bella Lithia, Cas Anvar as Raatib Singh, Cameron Goodman as Renny Davidson, and Jean Marchand as Abel Vandermaark.
Paolo Barzman directs the 4-hour miniseries.
