The big canvas English-language film will be based on the iconic One Thousand And One Nights character Sinbad, a fictional Middle East mariner who over the course of seven voyages across the seas east of Africa and south of Asia has spectacular adventures encountering monsters, magic and various supernatural phenomena. The film is expected to have a cast of Middle East origin, including in the lead role.
Screenplay comes from Andrew Cosby, writer of Lionsgate’s upcoming Hellboy reboot and creator of Syfy series Eureka, and Hank Woon (It Came From The Desert). Shoot is being lined up for this fall with location scouting underway.
Producers are Yariv Lerner (Acts Of Vengeance), Lloyd Levin (Hellboy) and Bea Levin,
