Late last year, we shared a really cool sci-fi short film called Arrowhead: Signal, which followed a mercenary named Kye who crash-lands on a hostile desert planet where he's forced to survive... of course, he's not alone. The idea behind the short was to turn it into a feature film, and according to Jesse O'Brien it is going to be a movie! Earlier it was reported that the movie would be turned into a TV series, but O'Brien reached out to us to tell us that was not correct, and that his vision of the short being a feature film is actually going to be realized which is awesome! I can't wait to see it!
This is the previous news that came from CNET Australia who said that it has "been picked up by Foxtel sci-fi channel SF for a premiere in 2014." Here's a synopsis for the show:
Arrowhead is a tale of survival set amongst the distant stars. Kye is a prisoner of war caught between two armies that he doesn't believe in. When offered an opportunity for freedom, Kye sets out on one last rescue mission, only to become stranded on a desert moon when his ship — the Arrowhead — crash lands. Kye has to learn to survive when we discovers a new life form that will challenge his very body and soul.
The movie will be shot on location in South Australia's desert landscapes. In case you missed the short the first time around, you can watch it below.
