PAY TV’s SF has com­mis­sioned its first Aus­tralian-made fea­ture length movie, which will be shot in re­mote South Aus­tralian lo­ca­tions. Pro­duc­tion for the sci-fi film Ar­row­head will start this month and screen in the sec­ond half of 2014. The ap­proval for the fea­ture film fol­lows the suc­cess of a short movie ti­tled Ar­row­head: Sig­nal, which gained crit­i­cal praise from the Amer­i­can me­dia tech web­site CNET. Ar­row­head is a tale of sur­vival set among the dis­tant stars. The lead char­ac­ter Kye is a pris­oner of war caught be­tween two armies that he doesn’t be­lieve in. When of­fered an op­por­tu­nity for freedom, Kye sets out on one last res­cue mis­sion, only to be­come stranded on a de­serted moon when his ship – the Ar­row­head – crash lands. The movie has been writ­ten by Jesse O’Brien who will also di­rect the fea­ture film.
