LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - "24" actor Eric Balfour will star in "Rise of the Gargoyle," a Sci Fi Channel TV movie about an ancient gargoyle monster whose terror is unleashed in modern-day Paris.

Balfour plays Jack Richmond, a struggling author whose outlandish theories on pagan architecture make him the laughingstock of the academic world. But when Jack finds himself face to face in a demolished church with a live version of the stone gargoyles he's devoted his life to studying, no one believes his story.

"Gargoyle" is shooting through month's end in Romania.
