We got word back in the spring of 2010 that former Stargate Atlantis star David Hewlett was in Bulgaria, shooting his Syfy Channel directorial debut: an “evil snow monkey movie.” Ever since then we’ve been waiting and searching for news about just what the movie is called and when it will air.
Now we know: Rage of the Yeti will make its premiere next Saturday night!
David Chokachi (Witchblade, Baywatch), Yancy Butler (Witchblade, Brooklyn South), and Matthew Anderson (The 4400) star in the film about a group of treasure hunters who cross paths with ferocious snow beasts in the Arctic, and must fight for survival instead of for glory.
Hewlett (“Dr. Rodney McKay” on Atlantis) also reportedly makes a cameo appearance on screen.
Watch the trailer for Rage of the Yeti below, then follow David on Twitter @dhewlett! The movie airs Saturday, November 12 at 9/8c on Syfy.
