A few months ago we reported that Luciana had been cast in The Icarus II Project, an independent web series which was in pre-production back then. Actual filming has started since, and interesting news about the project have begun to surface.
Before shooting started, there was a whole different kind of shooting, as the actors had to complete intensive weapons training. Luciana said on her official Facebook page:
“Tactical Black – Combat Firearms and Hostile Environment Training – These guys are awesome! I handle a gun better than the LAPD … so they tell me ;-)”
The last two weekends saw the filming of some major action scenes. Speaking of action scenes: In our first blog entry about The Icarus II Project we mentioned they were trying to make this an “high-octane” webseries. And now it looks like they really are pushing the boundaries of what is possible for a very low-budget independent production, as they will film action scenes with an actual helicopter.
So it certainly looks like they are on track and doing well, and we can’t wait to see the finished web series, which is scheduled to premiere at the San Diego Comic Con on July 22 this year.
Interesting tidbit: Canadian actor Tobias Mehler, who played Apollo’s brother Zak in three episodes of Battlestar Galactica, was cast in The Icarus II Project, too, and he first appeared in “Act of Contrition“, the same episode which introduced Luciana’s character Louanne “Kat” Katraine.
Now all we need are some photos of our kick-ass lady. And maybe a trailer, but since the filming only started recently there probably won’t be one anytime soon.
