Via the newsfeed from Slice of Sci Fi, I found this bit of spiffy news:
Noah Wyle (”ER”) is set to return as Flynn Carsen in the third installment of TNT’s Librarian franchise, The Librarian: The Curse of the Judas Chalice, producer Electric Entertainment announced. Bob Newhart and Jane Curtin will also reprise their roles, with Bruce Davison (”X-Men”) and Stana Katic (”Feast of Love”) joining the cast. Jonathan Frakes (”Star Trek: The Next Generation”), who directed the second Librarian installment, The Librarian: Return to King Solomon’s Mines, will once again take the helm.
The Librarian: The Curse Of The Judas Chalice opens with a restless Flynn attempting to assimilate back into his career as a librarian at the New York Metropolitan Library after many adventures abroad. Led to New Orleans by strange dreams, he finds himself in the midst of uncovering a conspiracy that involves the notorious vampire, Prince Vlad Dracul. Once again, Flynn must overcome his fears and protect one of the world’s most sacred artifacts, the Judas Chalice, or face the consequences of it falling into the wrong hands.
The Librarian series on TNT is one of my favorite franchises. I won’t say that when I became interested in library school back in 2002 or 2003 it was because of the first movie; I will say that part of my motivation for leaving library school, though, was discovering that it was very unlikely I’d ever travel the world in search of lost artifacts that could save civilization from certain doom. Lots of careers are disappointing in that way.
