NEW YORK, June 28 (UPI) -- Hollywood actor Danny Glover is to star in the small-screen science-fiction flick "Age of Dragons," Syfy said Tuesday.

Glover is best known for his work in the "Lethal Weapon" franchise movies.

Set to air July 30 and co-starring Vinnie Jones, "Dragons" is a new take on the "Moby Dick" whale tale.

"Captain Ahab's obsession to seek revenge on a Great White Dragon that once slaughtered his family drives him, his crew and his adoptive daughter into the heart of danger," the cable network said in a synopsis. "Once in the White Dragon's lair, Ahab must battle the monster, confront a mutinous crew and reclaim the love of his daughter."
