In an August 8 press release, the Australian multi- awards-winning movie actor confirmed plans to launch a new NFT collection to finance his “Retrogression,” an upcoming blockbuster sci-fi film trilogy. Hayes has partnered with Mogul Production to launch his NFT collection.
Hayes’ involvement in NFT space appears a few weeks after another contemporary movie actor Kelvin Hart announced plans to launch his new series of NFTs. Under the new partnership, the Australian movie maker anticipates launching one-of-a-kind NFT series dubbed “The Dark Army,” ahead of the highly anticipated scheduled trilogy, “Retrogression.”

Moreover, Mogul empowers NFT holders to take an active role in the script-to-screen process and enjoy exclusive insider benefits and perks, including access to exclusive events held around Mogul-produced film releases.
On the other hand, Anthony Hayes is an Australian movie star, producer, and director of the famous movie “GOLD,” starring Zac Efron. Hayes is renowned for producing other collections of movies, including inWAR MACHINE with Brad Pitt, THE ROVER with Robert Pattinson, LIGHT BETWEEN OCEANS with Michael Fassbender, and ANIMAL KINGDOM with Joel Edgerton.
The Dark Army NFTs Collection
The highly anticipated Retrogression features a dirk dystopian sci-fi epic set 300 years in the future, where the Dark Army policies slave factories on an island called Omega. The Dark Army forces the poor to labor and produces goods for the rich. The Dark Army NFT series come for the rescue and draw inspiration from these enforcers on Omega’s ravaged landscape.
Rare-tier Dark Army NFTs will offer holders exclusive perks, such as Executive Producer credit on the first Retrogression feature film. Other rare NFTs will give holders a unique experience like an on-set visit during production or a chance to appear as a featured player in the movie.
The common Dark Army NFTs will provide groundbreaking utility for holders, including beta testing passes to play the upcoming Retrogression game, a digital image of a costume from the film, and exclusive behind-the-scenes access.
The Dark Army NFTs will officially launch on the Ethereum blockchain as ERC-721 tokens. The NFT project will feature a “lazy mint” process, with the ecosystem minting each NFT randomly using Chainlink’s fair minting system integrated on the Mogul platform. The integration will give all buyers an equal chance to score a super-rare NFT.
Hayes’ highly anticipated NFT collection will feature a limited edition of 1,530 NFTs, with the rarest NFT of all, “Dark Army leader General McKinsky,” consisting of just ten collectibles in each color.
The Dark Army NFTs will feature in-built utilities, enabling holders to integrate avatars in its metaverses and play-to-earn (P2E) gaming.
According to the team behind developments, all proceeds from the NFT sale will move towards funding the film production, with a host of perks included for community members who join in the NFT sale.
Another NFT and metaverse-related play-to-earn (P2E) platform we have recently reviewed includes Tamadoge, which has sold more than 500,000 of its native tokens in just eleven days.
