Solomon Kane

At long last one of my favorite Robert E. Howard characters will have his own movie, view the trailer here. The film, directed and written by Michael J. Bassett (with help from Howard of course) couldn't get any funding anywhere, dunno why, perhaps the Puritan (omg did he say Puritan?) nature of the Kane character scared off all of the big production studios. So Bassett shot this whole thing on a skeletal budget and mostly out of his own pocket from what I understand, remember that as you watch the trailer. Official release for the US is September 24, 2009 at the Austin Fantastic Fest. As far as I know there isn't going to be a theatrical release, so this means straight to DVD. Damn shame, but this movie should be fun!
