Actor and former child star Rick Schroder is adding "sci fi director" to his extensive list of Hollywood credits. The actor will direct Hellhounds, a telefilm for the Sci Fi Channel. Hellhounds is slated for release sometime next year. This is not Schroder's first foray into directing. He has directed a handful of music videos and lensed 2004's Black Cloud, a Native American-themed drama, as well.
The CGI and special effects-heavy film is set in 500 B.C., with a Greek warrior and his cronies engaging in battle with the hounds of hell that guard the gates of Hades. The warrior, named Kleitos, will attempt to rescue his wife from Hades and bring her back to life. The film began shooting last week in Romania and is a shared production between Canada's Muse Entertainment and S.C. Studiorile Media Pro, which is based in Romania.
