MARK PAUL GOSSELAAR
TO LEAD 'PASSAGE' SF SERIES
Well, this is certainly a great casting: as 'Deadline' reports Mark Paul Gosselaar will lead fantasy series pilot THE PASSAGE at Fox based on Justin Cronin's fantasy trilogy. Saniyya Sidney, Genesis Rodriguez, Brianne Howey, BJ Britt and Jennifer Ferrin also star.
Described as an epic, character driven thriller that morphs into a post apocalyptic odyssey THE PASSAGE is told in two timelines. In the present, a 10-year-old Amy Bellafonte (Sidney) seems to have special powers that allow her to communicate with “virals,” terrifying monsters that once were human. Through flashbacks, Amy tells her tale, which is directly tied to the genesis of these creatures. Gosselaar will play an agent who is supposed to escort her from a medical facility but escapes with her realizing she might be the key for saving humanity from a vampire disease!

Set for July next year, the movie revolves around two women (played by Kate McKinnon and Mila Kunis) who find themselves in the middle of an international conspiracy when one of them discovers that the man who dumped her was actually a spy.
