Sony has adapted their successful Playstation video game "Heavenly Sword" into a computer generated feature film. Aussie Anna Torv (Fringe) provides the voice of Nariko, the fiery red-haired heroine.
The film is currently scheduled to be in theatres Spring 2014.
"Heavenly Sword" is a dramatic tale of revenge that sees Nariko (Anna Torv), a fiery red-haired heroine, embark on a quest for vengeance against the invading King Bohan (Alfred Molina) and his army.
Once considered the failure of a legendary prophesy, Nariko must wield a sword that was ultimately meant for another. This ancient Heavenly Sword, once belonging to a powerful deity, can never be wielded by a mortal without it slowly but inevitably killing them.
For Nariko it is a race against time to avenge her clan before her life is irreparably overtaken by the omnipotent Heavenly Sword.
Torv was Australians in Film’s 2009 Breakthrough award recipient. David Gillespie and Sam Worthington also received a Breakthrough Award in 2009.
