NEW YORK, Aug. 29 (UPI) -- Syfy says production has begun in Vancouver on its TV movie "The Philadelphia Experiment," starring Nicholas Lea, Michael Pare and Malcolm McDowell.

Co-starring Ryan Robbins, Gina Holden and Emilie Ullerup, the film is about a deadly hole in the fabric of time. Production on the movie began Thursday and the film is expected to premiere on Syfy next year.

It is being directed by Paul Ziller and is based on a screenplay by Andy Briggs.

"In 'The Philadelphia Experiment,' a secret government research project tries reviving the World War II 'Philadelphia Experiment,' which was an attempt to create a cloaking device to render warships invisible," a synopsis of the TV movie says. "When the experiment succeeds, it brings back the original ship -- the Eldridge -- that disappeared during the first test in 1943 -- which brings death and destruction to the 21st century. It's up to the sole survivor of the first experiment and his granddaughter to stop it."
