When Syfy’s four-hour event, The Phantom [Sunday, 7/6], airs this weekend, there will be some who hate it because of its deviation from the way the character has always been done. A female Guran? Gasp! A worldwide multi-national information gathering force? Never! [The Phantom is the lone wolf of lone wolves!] A new, high-tech suit??? Blasphemy!!! Not hasn’t this Phantom spent his life in training for the day when he would become the latest crusader against evil in all its forms, he isn’t even aware that he is one of the Phantom’s line!

On Sunday, Syfy presents its four-hour event, The Phantom [Sunday, 7/6C]. Based on the 74-year old comic strip, this new adventure of The Ghost Who Walks also features the newest in a long line of Phantoms that dates back to 1536. While respectful of the character and the strip’s traditions, Syfy’s The Phantom makes some pretty big changes in its presentation of the latest man to wear the Phantom’s skull ring.

I had the opportunity to take part in a teleconference Q&A session with Ryan Carnes, who stars as Christopher Moore, whose life take a radical turn when he learns that he is both The Phantom and the last of his line. Carnes came across as cheerful and irreverent, much like his character, and very enthusiastic about the project.

My review of The Phantom will appear on Saturday.

TELEVISION: Syfy Announces Airdate for Four-Hour Phantom Event!


Syfy’s re-working/updating of Lee Falk’s comics hero The Phantom is scheduled to air on Sunday, June 20, 2010, beginning at 7/6C. The four-hour epic takes more than a few liberties with the traditional Ghost Who Walks’ saga – including giving him a female advisor – though she is still named Guran – and more modern equipment. Isabella Rossellini takes a villainous turn in the proceedings. Details from the press release follow the jump.

It’s the adventure of Matt, a combat photojournalist, killed along with his fiancée by a suicide bomber, who awakens in a mysterious world where everyone who has ever previously lived on Earth, has been “reborn” along the banks of a seemingly endless river. Determined to locate his lost love Jessica, Matt joins forces, a 13th century female samurai warrior named Tomoe and American novelist Mark Twain. Together they sail upriver in search of its source, and to discover where they are and who put them there. Riverworld is produced by Reunion Pictures (Airdate 2010).

The classic comic book character The Phantom has been re-imagined and transported to present day in a live-action, four-hour movie from writers Dan Knauf (Carnivale) and Charles Knauf. A favorite costumed hero for more than six decades, The Phantom relies on his wits, physical strength and skill with weapons over superhuman powers. Production is slated to begin in April in Montreal with Director Paolo Barzman (The Last Templar) at the helm. The Phantom is produced by Muse Entertainment (Airdate 2010).

Alice is a modern-day reinterpretation of Lewis Carroll’s classic novel Alices Adventures in Wonderland. The four-hour movie event is written and directed by Nick Willing; director of SCI FI and RHI’s 2007 record-breaking, Emmy-nominated miniseries, Tin Man. Production on Alice is expected to begin in May in Vancouver. Alice is produced by Reunion Pictures (Airdate: Late 2009).

Pre-production and casting are under way.
