With filming expected to begin this month in Cape Town, South Africa, Syfy has just officially confirmed the addition of three actors to the Dominion cast. Christopher Egan (Kings), Tom Wisdom (300, the upcoming Romeo and Juliet), and Alan Dale (Once Upon a Time, Lost) have all signed on to the supernatural drama based on the 2010 horror film Legion which starred Paul Bettany, Dennis Quaid, and Tyrese Gibson.
 
The series pilot will be directed by Scott Stewart, co-writer and director of Legion. Stewart’s also on board as an executive producer alongside Bold Films’ Michel Litvak and David Lancaster. Dominion‘s pilot was written by co-executive producer Vaun Wilmott.
 
The Plot:
 
Dominion is an epic supernatural action drama set 25 years after the events of the movie and picking up in the aftermath of a catastrophic war between an army of angels and mankind that has transformed the world. The series follows the perilous journey of a rebellious young soldier who discovers he’s the unlikely savior of humanity, set against a backdrop of the ultimate celestial battle as it touches down on earth.
 
Christopher Egan plays “Alex Lannen,” an orphan with both a rebellious and protective streak. Handsome, heroic and fearless, Alex is classified as a “grunt” soldier in Michael’s Archangel Corp but he is destined for more than his lowly classification in Vega’s post-Extermination War society might indicate.
 
Tom Wisdom plays “Michael,” the greatest of the warrior archangels. Scarred by millennia of battle, Michael is stoic, inscrutable and haunted. Instrumental in helping humanity defeat the angels during the Extermination War, Michael is now entrenched in Vega, using his superior supernatural abilities to defend the city’s inhabitants from enemy attacks.
 
Alan Dale plays “Rysen,” the general who led the humans to victory against the angels during the “Extermination War.” Responsibilities weigh heavily upon him as ruler of Vega (once known as Las Vegas), one of four cities left standing after the war. He now finds himself negotiating politics in the heavily militarized city, maintaining calm over its stratified society and keeping a watchful eye on his daughter, Claire.
