Renny Harlin Goes Sci-Fi With “Solara”

Filmmaker Renny Harlin and producer Daljit DJ Parmar are teaming to launch Extraordinary Entertainment, a new China-based production and finance company.

The first announced feature, the Mandarin-language sci-fi epic “Solara,” will see Harlin direct and produce with Parmar. “Olympus Has Fallen” scribes Creighton Rothenberger and Katrin Benedikt penned the script which revolves around an international team working to save the Earth and the human race from a global catastrophe.

Other projects are being developed, but were not disclosed. Set to have bases in Beijing and Hong Kong, Extraordinary Entertainment plans to focus on developing international co-productions, as well as local-language Chinese content with action, sci-fi and comedy-adventure movies budgeted in the $10-50 million range along with premium and scripted series for TV and online.
