Christopher Judge To Appear In Dark Swarm

Erica Cerra, who plays Deputy Jo Lupo on SCI FI Channel’s original series Eureka, told SCI FI Wire that she’ll co-star in the upcoming SF film Dark Swarm.

Dark Swarm follows a group of people who’ve survived an attack on Earth by carnivorous alien creatures and who prepare to make one last stand against them.

“It’s all CGI,” Cerra said in an interview. “It’s supposed to be really cool. It’s an all-green-screen sort of film. I don’t know how much of it I can give away. But the basic setup is that there is something sort of taking over the Earth. … Initially, they’re under the impression it’s a swarm, but then they start to kind of unravel what exactly it is.”

Cerra is joined in the cast by popular genre actors Christopher Judge (Stargate SG-1) and Ed Wasser (Babylon 5). Tim Pyle (Decaying Orbit) has co-written and will direct. Pyle will also handle the visual effects, as he’s done on such productions as Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius and the SCI FI original miniseries Children of Dune.

Asked if she’s a hero or a victim in the film, Cerra laughed and replied: “Both.”

Dark Swarm goes into production this summer with an eye toward a 2009 release.
