About ‘The Lost Legion’:
Sex, corruption, betrayal and the final death throws of a once powerful Empire. Where enemies become allies, allies become pawns and one man’s struggle to survive is “the last chance for a new Rome”.
After the fall of the Rome, a once powerful Empire is now but a shadow of it’s self, deprived of its former glory and the Dark Ages are imminent. Fortress towns are now small kingdoms where decadence and corruption thrive and the struggle to maintain control is quickly slipping away. In one such remote outpost, one Legion remains and strives to bring Rome back to its former glory and the interwoven lives of the strong, the corrupt, the innocent and the power hungry will determine Rome’s final destiny.
About the Cast and Characters:
The feature film stars Michelle Lukes (‘Strike Back’, ‘Alexander’, ‘Doctors’) as the manipulative and shrewd Urbina Prima, the wife of Maximus the insane and glory seeking Roman Emperor played by Brian Caspe (‘Hellboy’, The Illusionist’, ‘The Last Knights’). Also starring is Tom McKay (‘Hatfields & McCoys’, ‘The White Queen’) as the ‘Legions’ hero Taranis and Jim High (‘The Muskateers’, ‘Borgia’, Crossing Lines’) as Argos, the middleman who plays all sides of this chessboard.
This stellar cast comes with a long list of Emmy, Golden Globe and People Choice nominated credits and awards on both feature films and television.
