Vision and Passion
Project Abaddon is the brainchild of creator Pete Borreggine and Gary Hauger, set 600 years in the future and explores a how a group of diverse characters are forced to work together, disagree with everything, find an ancient artifact, learn how to use it, and unite billions before an alien force determined to destroy everything returns for the very artifact our crew has.
Project Abaddon: Rise of the Destroyer is produced by an independent film company: Galactech Entertainment, LLC.
What Project Abaddon will try to do is bring all the best of the sci-fi shows that have come before and couple it with adventure of Indiana Jones and the drama of "24". What does that mean? Well, our main character, is not a starship captain at all but rather an A.I. V/R programmer and dreamer that seeks a truth that he so desperately needs.
What Skybound Entertainment Said
In pitching to Michael C. Rodgers of Skybound Entertainment (The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead), this is what he said:
"Despite being uninvolved, Rise of the Destroyer does sound very similar to Ad Astra in its pitch but that's not necessarily a bad thing and I think it still sets itself apart tonally. There is a definite space (pun not intended) for this type of movie (especially at somewhere like Warner Bros) and the tone of this seems a bit more "fun" than Pitt's film, which will inevitably cause it to stand out. It's an interesting tonal take on a heavy concept-- doing the Matrix, for lack of a better comparison, but with a light-hearted space adventure viewpoint isn't something I've seen before. Consider pitching the Indiana Jones comparison up front -- it definitely informs how the reader considers the rest of the pitch."
What's important to note, I never told him that we were going to Warner Bros on 31 JAN 20 and now Warner Bros Studios is very interested in Abaddon. Watch this space!
In the year 2385, A.I. engineer and notorious recluse Ken Chiang, discovers clues about the mysterious last mission of his late explorer father. He must join a crew of misfits and set off into unexplored regions of space to desperately search for an ancient alien artifact and destroy it, before it annihilates all life on Earth.
Teaser for New Synopsis
And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit... And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.
-- John of Patmos
Project Abaddon's about a man Ken Chiang, now 28, who's a notorious recluse and over the past 20 years learns how to build A.I. VR worlds to deal with the loss of his father some 20 years prior.
The Promise never kept...
As a young boy, Ken, 8 years old, loved his father. But he was always away on interstellar archaeological missions trying to tie what's up there to down here on earth.
But, it was the last time, when his father promised that he'd come back for Ken. When his father tucked him in that final time and kissed him goodnight, it would be the last time he would ever see his father alive.
The Adventure Begins...
Ken has never really gotten over the loss of his father and lives in a simulated world. His mother passed away 1 year after the disappearance and loss of his father leaving Ken to be raised by the A.I. companion M.I.K.E. built by his father.
He rarely leaves the comfort and security of his home and studio and lives in the simulated worlds he creates where he spends time with his father and mother. It isn't until he meets a strange woman, who Ken thinks is a client for his immersive tech who reveals she has the truth about the disappearance of his father and her mother, Ken's father's companion.
Now, Ken decides that if he wants the truth he so desperately seeks, he needs to go Mars and follow this woman which puts him on an adventure like nothing he could've ever created and that adventure leads brings him face to face with with the very ancient alien artifact his father sought. It's a race against time with a group of misfits to stop what's coming before humanity's annihilation is assured.Media Center
