Regent sees future in ‘Nostradamus’

Takacs helming current twist on prognosticator

Regent Entertainment hopes to capitalize on millennium frenzy with “Nostradamus,” currently being shot in Canada.

Pic puts a contemporary twist on the prophet who forecast global apocalypse. Combining elements of history and myth in a sci-fi actioner, “Nostradamus” centers on a New York cop and an FBI psychic who team up on a homicide investigation. Transported back to the 16th century, the policeman discovers that he is the oracle’s alter ego.

Rob Estes (“Melrose Place”) plays the cop and Joely Fisher (“Inspector Gadget,” ABC’s “Ellen”) is the FBI investigator. Fintan McKeown (“Waking Ned Devine”) portrays the zealous leader of the Sixth Order.

Takacs takes helm

David Bourla and Brian Irving penned the time travel script; Tibor Takacs (“I, Madman,” TV’s “Sabrina, the Teenage Witch,” “The Outer Limits”) is directing. Bourla previously teamed with Regent as a writer-director on “When Time Expires” for Showtime. Irving has previously teamed with Takacs on several projects.

Regent is producing “Nostradamus” in association with John Aaron Prods.

L.A.-based Regent Entertainment is the largest provider of feature product for Fox Family Channel; it also produced the Oscar-winning “Gods and Monsters.” Regent’s partners are Mark R. Harris, Paul Colichman, Stephen P. Jarchow and Peter Dekom.

Fisher was repped in the deal by Chuck James of the Gersh Agency, manager John Carrabino and attorney David Weber of Bloom, Hergott, Cook, Diemer & Klein. Estes is repped by ICM.
