Desilu Studios to Bring "V The Movie" to the Big Screen
Los Angeles, February 6, 2018 -
Desilu Studios, Inc announced today that it will bring the long-awaited
sci-fi feature film "V The Movie", a big-budget treatment of the highly
successful, critically-acclaimed 80's miniseries to movie screens worldwide.
The film will be written and directed by the original's creator, Kenneth
Johnson and produced by John Hermansen, Barry Opper and Johnson.
"We are delighted to team up with Desilu to bring the timeless -- and
timely -- story of resistance against tyranny into the 21st Century,"
Johnson said. "V will be the first of a cinematic trilogy which will tell
the full epic tale in the manner I always envisioned."
"Desilu was revolutionary in its time and as the saying goes, everything
old is new again" said maverick businessman Charles B. Hensley who
acquired the Desilu brand with a vision of reimagining Desilu into a global
entertainment and commercial empire. Hensley continued,"Coming
from the consumer products space, it makes sense for the company’s
trajectory and shareholders to focus on film and television properties with
high merchandising and licensing potential such as
V The Movie Franchise.”
"Identifying and driving valuable allied profit centers, maximizing
income potential for each property is our ideal content model," added
Michael Mann, Exec VP Business Development.
The highly sought-after project was brought to Desilu by development
executive Sean Stone. “V is a multi-billion dollar film franchise and
merchandising juggernaut” said Desilu Exec VP Steven Posen, adding,
“we couldn’t be more excited and honored to bring this film to the millions
of devoted fans worldwide.”
“It’s no small irony that the new Desilu will be building on the sci-fi
tradition with 'V', considering Desilu was the original studio
responsible for 'Star Trek!'” added Stone.

From Kenny to the fans and devoted friends of V...
The announcement above is a very important and extremely positive
development toward achieving our goal of making V The Movie and the
two sequels based upon my novel V The Second Generation.
Desilu has entered into a contract with our company, Victory Pictures,
which grants them an Exclusive Option on the motion picture rights to V
The Movie and the opportunity to present it to their investors. Desilu
hopes to have the full funding in place within the next few months.
Once that financing is complete we will be able to announce when actual
production of the movie will commence. In the meantime we are indeed
delighted to be involved with the team at Desilu -- who are as enthusiastic
and eager as we are to make a movie that we can all be proud of.
