The Librarian 3 aka The Curse of the Judas Chalice

We already knew this…

According to http://www.scifi.com/scifiwire/index.php?category=0&id=49950 on March 7, 2008…

“Noah Wyle 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. Electric Entertainment’s Dean Devlin, Kearie Peak and Marc Roskin are executive-producing. Wyle and Electric’s Phil Goldfarb are producing, with the company’s Rachel Olschan co-producing. The project began shooting in New Orleans this week.

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.

Newhart returns as Judson, who once having been a librarian, now serves as head of the library. Curtin comes back as Charlene, the extremely serious-minded, no-nonsense personnel director for the library.

Katic plays Simone Renoir, a gorgeous young New Orleans jazz-club singer, who uses her hypnotic performances to charm an off-guard Flynn. Turned into a vampire by the infamous Vlad Dracul 400 years ago, Simone has been on a lifelong hunt to find the man who condemned her soul to walk the night forever. She teams up with Flynn to outwit those hoping to find the chalice and use it for their evil agenda.

Davison plays Professor Lazlo, an elderly, crippled man who is a brilliant professor at the University of Bucharest. Seemingly harmless, he is taken hostage by the villainous Kubichek, who wants Lazlo to lead him to the Judas Chalice.

TNT’s Librarian franchise of movies has proven successful for the network. The first installment, The Librarian: Quest for the Spear, ranked as ad-supported cable’s number-one movie of 2004. The second installment, The Librarian: Return to King Solomon’s Mines, ranks as ad-supported cable’s number-one original movie sequel of all time and placed among the top five movie telecasts of 2006.”

But no word on when its coming out!

  1. I rather enjoyed your blog as well. I’m a little late finding it. As a cast member of this latest installment, it’s nice to read about it online and hopefully it will turn out as fun to watch as it was to film. By the way… it looks like the release date will either be in late-November during the sweeps period or possibly early-December.

  2. Hi Stephen,

    November or December? Excellent. The first two shows were so cute, I cant wait for the new one andI know all my Librarian friends are very excited too! I will keep my eyes open for you in the show.

    Thanks,
    Melissa

  3. Hello again! In case you have not heard, the premiere date is slated for December 7th. I was watching the Tampa Bay Rays/Boston Red Sox playoff game when the trailer for ‘L3:COTJC’ came on. I immediately hit the TiVO button so I could record it. I was brushing my teeth at the time and nearly choked on the toothpaste when I actually appeared in the preview. Sweeeet!
    Anyway… as you can tell from the amount of time that has passed since the last time that I have written, I do not do much “surfing”, but I DID remember that I had written to you so I thought it only appropriate enough to let you know about the premiere date.
    Take Care! Happy Watching! You have my email address if you need to get in touch with me… or at least I THINK that you do.

  4. Hi Stephen,

    Thank you! I had not heard or seen anything yet. I can’t wait to see it. Thats wonderful that you are on the preview!

    Thanks for letting me know.
    Happy Halloween,
    Melissa

  5. Hi,

    I watched the movie several times and love it! now I tried fruitlessly to find out what the songs are in the movie, especially the one in the scene that Simone and Flynn sit to watch sunrise (Simone to finally rest in peace). The lyrics in the 15 seconds are something like this ‘to lose and love only to lose again…no i will never leave you..’.

    I googled so many times but couldn’t find it.

    Melissa can you ask Stephen whether he knows about it and share this information (and how/where to get it). Thanks.

  6. Hi Albert,

    I loved the movie too. I will send Stephen an email and ask him if he knows. I was thinking that you might have to wait until the DVD comes out and look on there (which I am sure will list all the title and artist). But if I hear anything I will post it.

    Thanks,
    Melissa

  7. I’d also like to know where to find that song! It was quite enchanting. I’ve googled around trying to find it with no luck.

    Thanks!

  8. Hi all,

    I emailed Stephen and he writes “I’m happy with the way that it turned out. I would have been even happier if all of my scenes had made the final cut. Oh well. The scene where they are saying good-bye was actually kinda’ funny because we were sitting just off of a dirt road and Noah and Stana were supposed to be looking at the sunset when they were actually looking at us. And they had to do it over and over and over. The songs… unfortunately, I cannot be much help there. I Can tell you that it IS Stana singing in the bar. She has a beautiful voice. She sang often in the make-up trailer. The only info that TNT will give is the same as was in the credits: Music clearances by Kathleen Merrill- The Parker Music Group. Also… it might be a lil tricky to find because not a lot of retailers carry a huge selection of soundtracks, but there IS a soundtrack for the movie. It might not become more widely available here until the DVD release. Please say “Hello” to everyone on your blog.”

    You can also email him any questions you might have at http://www.stephendavidcalhoun.com

  9. Ah ha! I’m not the only one who has been trying invain to find out the name of the song Stana Katic sings in the Libraian movie! I searched Joseph LoDuca music and found no reference to it there. “to lose and love only to lose again, no i will never leave you, ….a spell that crossed the stars, to lie with you under a hundred moons…” Where can we find the song writer and title?

  10. I’ve been searching for that song also.i had seen the movie just recently and fell in love with it.The movie was great and i absolutley love the actors.But it seems quite familiar to a book i read.Melissa would you happen to know wether or not it was based on a book or not?

  11. Hi Cain and Amber,

    The DVD is listed as coming out on Feb 24 from Amazon.com. My guess is that they will have information on there about the songs and perhaps the soundtrack will also be released at the same time.

    I believe its an original story. You can read the comic for the movie on http://www.tnt.tv/movies/librarian/

    Melissa

  12. Can someone please email me if they find more information about the soundtrack? I love some of the songs in the movie but I can’t find the soundtrack anywhere on the web, including Amazon and iTunes. Thanks!

  13. Hi. I Absolutely Love Librarian 3. I’ve seen it about three times as it is already. I’ve been haunted by that love that Stana sings ever since I heard it. If anyone finds anything out about the soundtrack for the show, especially that particular jazz song that Stana sings, would you please email me? I’d really appreciate it. Stana has a GREAT voice!

  14. I come to here when searching “to lie with you under a hundred moons”.
    I am Chinese and love this song, will some one email me more information after got it?

    My email: olimpics#gmail.com

  15. Haha, something about that song indeed.

    It touched me enough to go look for it on the web and behold, I’m not the only one. 😛

    Haven’t found it yet tho. :<

  16. Loved the movie. And the music was great too. There’s one song in particular I’d love some info on. Some of the lyrics are “…can’t believe it’s over and I’m walking home again..”. I’d appreciate any info.
    legend146@yahoo.com

  17. it’s called ‘simone’s song’, written by joseph loduca. i’m looking for the sheet music, if u know where it is, please let me know.
    :)k

  18. looked at the website for la la land records and i am trying to figure out the jazz or cajan song in the latter third of the show shows a male walkiing and is sung by a older sounding male jazz singer could some one tell me his name know is vague appreciate it boots

  19. Actually, the song Fred asked about on Mar 4 was “Comin’ home” and is the 22nd song on the songtrack CD. Seems to be an original composition by Loduca just for the movie and may not be available anywhere else. Only contains two stanzas and is less than a minute long. Would have been nice to have a complete song of this though, because it is one of the best on the movie. Here are the lyrics:

    Comin’ Home – Joseph Loduca (0:53)

    I thought at last my search was over,
    but I found somebody new.
    Told me that she really loved me,
    and I believe those words were true.

    Then the night came when you left me,
    my one, my only friend.
    Now I can’t believe its over,
    and I’m walking home again.

  20. need to know true title of song: i’m walking home again from movie….”librarian” : curse of judas chalice…….

    pls tell me artist and correct title song from movie thnks

  21. Hi Norman,

    You should contact LaLa Land Records, as they published the CD. The music was by Joseph Loduca.

    Melissa

  22. Hi Melissa,

    I finally got the music from a friend “Comin’ Home” 0.53 seconds… and noticed the following:

    1. there seems a BIG voice background on it, and I’m not sure if it’s really in the original recording

    2. in the last line of the song was once repeated… and I’m walking home again, I’m walking home walking again”…

    thanks

  23. Sorry! I just want to rephrase item 2:

    2. in the movie, the last line of a song was once repeated (and i’m walking home again, and walking home again) but the 0.53 seconds mp3 I had one time only (and i’m walking home again) and is exactly the same as the lyrics you have written above.

    Nice to have the whole song… it seems that it plays the last stanza only. I made a rigorous research in order to get the whole song, but end up frustrated. Hmmm I wonder if someone out there knows the whole music “coming home” as my mom loves it.

  24. Hi Jerry,
    Its a great song, but i have no idea if its part of something bigger. I know that Joseph Loduca has a webpage, so you might want to contact him or see if his website lists anything.

    Thanks,
    Melissa

  25. Hello Melissa,

    I maybe exaggerated on elaborating too much of the song.

    BTW thank you so much for your advice, there seems to be nothing on his website. Perhaps you are right, Joseph Loduca made it for that movie only.

    Thanks again,

    Jerry
