Last month we updated you on Christopher Judge‘s hopeful television series Rage of Angels, which has been moved from MGM to Starz Media for development (story). Judge — Stargate SG-1‘s Teal’c — is writing, producing, and starring in the new fantasy series.
That news was based on comments made by Judge last fall, so today we were happy to see a brand new interview with the actor/producer in which he confirms that the wheels of pre-production are still turning.
As previously reported, the series follows the archangel Gabriel (played by Judge), who hunts other supernatural beings after being sent to Earth.
“One of the things that’s most oft-missed is that angels, when they take human form, should be subject to all the temptations we are subject to. I’m a true believer that what keeps us from anarchy is the fact that the majority of us believe that our souls have to answer to something once these physical vessels are exhausted. So if you don’t have that burden, what keeps you from doing whatever the f— you want to do? Nothing.
“That’s one of the things we are going to explore in this series. What is it like for these archangels that come to earth, who have these tactile sensations that are new to them — how does that affect them? And what really is the difference between good and evil?”
Meanwhile, Judge will appear in MacDonald’s remake of “The Saint,” set to go before cameras this June. He’ll also appear alongside Kevin Sorbo (Andromeda, Hercules) in the movie Paradox, set to be released later this year and the first of a possible trilogy, according to Comic Book Movie. Watch for a trailer this summer at Comic-Con.
Judge also confirmed that the next SG-1 movie is waiting for MGM to work out its financial crisis — though he is concerned that the studio may find it harder now to get the whole cast back together.
“I don’t know how they’d ever get everybody back together again other than throwing heaps of money at us,” he joked.
