Desilu Studios and Kenneth Johnson to bring V to the big screen!

Desilu Studios, Inc announced today that it will bring the long-awaited sci-fi feature film “V The Movie”, a big-budget treatment of the highly successful, critically-acclaimed 80’s miniseries to movie screens worldwide.

The film will be written and directed by the original’s creator, Kenneth Johnson and produced by John Hermansen, Barry Opper and Johnson.

“We are delighted to team up with Desilu to bring the timeless – and timely — story of resistance against tyranny into the 21st Century,” Johnson said. “V will be the first of a cinematic trilogy which will tell the full epic tale in the manner I always envisioned.”

“Desilu was revolutionary in its time and as the saying goes, everything old is new again” said maverick businessman Charles B. Hensley who acquired the Desilu brand with a vision of reimagining Desilu into a global entertainment and commercial empire. Hensley continued, “Coming
from the consumer products space, it makes sense for the company’s trajectory and shareholders to focus on film and television properties with high merchandising and licensing potential such as
V The Movie Franchise.”

“Identifying and driving valuable allied profit centers, maximizing income potential for each property is our ideal content model,” added Michael Mann, Exec VP Business Development.

The highly sought-after project was brought to Desilu by development executive Sean Stone. “V is a multi-billion dollar film franchise and merchandising juggernaut” said Desilu Exec VP Steven Posen, adding, “we couldn’t be more excited and honored to bring this film to the millions of devoted fans worldwide.”

“It’s no small irony that the new Desilu will be building on the sci-fi tradition with ‘V’, considering Desilu was the original studio responsible for ‘Star Trek!’” added Stone.

Kenneth Johnson added…

To the fans and devoted friends of V…

The announcement above is a very important and extremely positive development toward achieving our goal of making V The Movie and the two sequels based upon my novel V The Second Generation.

Desilu has entered into a contract with our company, Victory Pictures, which grants them an Exclusive Option on the motion picture rights to V The Movie and the opportunity to present it to their investors. Desilu hopes to have the full funding in place within the next few months.

Once that financing is complete we will be able to announce when actual production of the movie will commence. In the meantime we are indeed delighted to be involved with the great team at Desilu — who are as enthusiastic and eager as we are to make a movie that we can all be proud of.

Keep checking back here to learn about our progress and… “Go tell your friends!”
