Osiris: Linda Hamilton vs. aliens
Linda Hamilton, Brianna Hildebrand, Max Martini, and LaMonica Garrett battle monsters in William Kaufman’s Osiris
Deadline reports that a sci-fi action movie called Osiris flew under the radar all the way through production – an impressive feat, as it happens to star Max Martini (Pacific Rim), Brianna Hildebrand (Deadpool), LaMonica Garrett (1883), and Linda Hamilton (The Terminator). Apparently filming took place in New Orleans back at the end of last year. XYZ Films is handling distribution sales worldwide, and has also released a first look image, which you can check out at the bottom of this article.
Directed by William Kaufman (The Channel), who also wrote the screenplay with Paul Reichelt, Osiris telling a story a team of Special Forces commandos who are in the middle of an operation when they are kidnapped by a mysterious spaceship. When they wake up on board the ship, they quickly discover that they are being hunted by a merciless alien race.
Martini is producing the film with Jon Wroblewski and Christian Sosa of Roosevelt Film Lab, as well as Andrew and Isaac Lewis of Denton Film. Reichelt is an executive producer. The representatives provided the following statement: “XYZ Films is the perfect partner that shares our passion for iconic alien thrillers that we all grew up with, lining up in theaters to watch with innovative creature designs and visual effects that bring delighting audiences everywhere. We did not hold back our nostalgia for the genre, and to work together again with Max Martini with the legendary Linda Hamilton was a great gift for this film. We can’t wait to show the world and wrap post-production this spring.“
As Deadline reports, this is the first film that Linda Hamilton has worked on in the five years since its release Terminator: Dark Fate. She has worked in television since then, and next has a role in the fifth and final season of the Netflix series Stranger Thingswho is now filming.

I was sold on this project as soon as I read that it was about these cast members being kidnapped by and fighting monsters.
