Check Out BATTLEDOGS This Saturday on SyFy!

Though it isn't an Asylum production, I'm taking space here to talk up Battledogs, this week's SyFy Saturday Night Original, because it comes from some of The Asylum's best. 

The film is directed by Alexander Yellen, a preeminent cinematographer with more than 20 Asylum titles under his belt, and written by Shane Van Dyke, who's both written and directed for our favorite studio, most recently stepping behind the camera for A Haunting in Salem. Van Dyke also co-wrote The Chernobyl Diaries.

Battledogs marks Yellen's first time at the helm of a picture, and if his camerawork on other flicks and in the trailer below is any indication, he's going to make a kick-ass director. Battledogs boasts an incredible cast, including Dennis Haysbert (24, Major League, Far From Heaven), Craig Sheffer (Night Breed, A River Runs Through It), Ernie Hudson (I shouldn't have to tell you), Bill Duke (Predator, Deep Cover), and Wes Studi (Last of the Mohicans, Avatar).

And though Battledogs is a wholly original film, it does have a tie to a film that's opening this weekend: the film also stars Arianna Richards, who played "Lex" in Jurassic Park, which opens this weekend in 3D. Shrewd marketing.

Dig the trailer then tune in Saturday night, 9 PM on SyFY, for Battledogs!
