RLJE Films has bought North American rights to sci-fi thriller Beyond The Sky, starring Ryan Carnes, Jordan Hinson, Martin Sensmeier, Don Stark and Peter Stormare, Variety reported.
In the film, Carnes portrays a man with a powerful and traumatic connection to alien abductions since his early childhood. He sets out to disprove the alien abduction phenomenon by attending a UFO convention — but then meets Hinson’s character, who claims to have been abducted every seven years on her birthday, and he realizes there may be more to these claims than meets the eye.
A cool piece of news hiding within the story reveals that Travis Walton, author of the memoir “Fire in the Sky” about his own alien abduction experience, served as a consultant and has a cameo in the film!
Fulvio Sestito directed from a story he wrote with Rebecca Berrih and Warren Thomas. The script was written by Thomas and Marc Porterfield.
Chief acquisitions officer Mark Ward for RLJE Films was drawn to the story and visual effects, stating: “With its unique approach to the story of alien abduction and its great special effects, we are thrilled to be able to bring ‘Beyond The Sky’ to audiences.”
RLJE plans to release the film in theaters and on VOD and Digital HD on Sept. 21, 2018.
