Frakes On 'The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice'

If Jonathan Frakes had his way, The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice would be a bit more graphic.

As reported by iFMagazine, working on a "light horror" movie was enjoyable for Frakes. "I love that genre," he said. "I also think of the three films, it’s the tightest and it had the best last act. It had the same wonderful tone of comedy peppered in among the action. This one, to a greater extent than the last two, allowed Flynn (the librarian) and Noah [Wylie] to have really seriously dramatic scenes as well. There were a lot of people smiling at the end, which you don't normally get, and it's always a complement to the actors and writers.

The Librarian series is about Flynn Carsen, a college student with multiple academic degrees who takes on the job of librarian at the Metropolitan Public Library. This position of library, though, has existed for centuries with the purpose of protecting historical and sometimes magical items, such as the Ark of the Covenant, Pandora's Box, and the goose that laid the golden eggs, which are all stored in a secret section of the library.

Frakes would have preferred a more graphic version of Curse of the Judas Chalice. "I was more inclined to do much more blood and gore," he said, "but TNT and Electric were aware that our audience is not the same audience as 'Saw.'"
