‘SLINGERS’ Viral/Sizzle Reel Posted – Following In The Footsteps Of ‘DISTRICT 9’ And ‘PARANORMAL ACTIVITY’ – THEE Next Big Science Fiction Television Series You’ve Never Heard Of (Yet)??

December 8, 2009

Still From 'SLINGERS'

Maybe. But don’t look for it on television. Not yet anyways. At the very least it gets the award for thee longest THRALL WORLD headline EVER…

Following in the footsteps of ‘District 9’ and ‘Paranormal Activity’ comes ‘SLINGERS’ – a sort of interstellar OCEAN’S 11 complete with the snappy dialogue and wit of say SNATCH.

THRALL WORLD stumbled on to this “Sizzle Reel” via complete accident. It’s basically a trailer made by creator Mike Sizemore and the plan is to get picked up as a full-blown television series. The strategy mirrors the manner in which ‘DISTRICT 9’ (which started out as the short ‘ALIVE IN JOBURG’) came to the attention of Peter Jackson and – even more recently – director Fede Alvarez got noticed and had his short, ‘PANIC ATTACK’, picked up by none other than SAM RAIMI of EVIL DEAD/SPIDERMAN fame.

Plot synopsis: Slingers is set in the year 2960 A.D., following mankind’s first interplanetary war. Humanity is now clustered into a finite, but still vast section of the universe known as Enclosed Space. Humanity won the war with an aggressive alien enemy, but at a cost. The way back to Earth is now cut off by an impassable barrier – a side effect of the blast that finally pushed the enemy back.

The show takes its name from a group of people thrown together on board an experimental spacecraft that is capable of Slinging itself to any point in space. In theory it’s the only craft capable of getting home. In reality the crew are using it to carry out a series of high tech heists and get even with those who are now exploiting their positions in the post war hierarchy.

Dominic ‘DM’ Monroe, a special ops war veteran becomes the de facto leader of this small team of thieves who rail against the decision by military command to just ‘stay where they are and make the best of it’. They’re determined to get home and if that means breaking a few rules and picking up a lot of enemies along the way then so be it.

Looks like they’re related even if IMDB couldn’t confirm if ‘DISTRICT 9’ was directly related. Also some talk of the movie being linked to the video game HALO which I don’t know too much about…
