Morningside Sails With "Sinbad: Rogue Of Mars"

Bluewater Productions reports that Morningside Entertainment has optioned Bluewater's upcoming graphic novel "Sinbad: Rogue of Mars", to adapt into an action adventure fantasy feature for a 2012 release.

A continuation of the "Sinbad" films that started in 1958 with "The 7th Voyage Of Sinbad", followed by "The Golden Voyage of Sinbad" and "Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger", "Rogue of Mars" is described an an 'updated sequel' rather than a reboot.

Executive Producer Barry Schneer revealed that "Rogue of Mars" is the first of a new trilogy to bring the 'Sinbad' character to a new generation.

"I am thrilled to continue the amazing legacy my uncle, Charles Schneer began with '7th Voyage' and bring to the screen the 'Sinbad' movie that he and Ray Harryhausen never got to make."

"...In his 4th film adventure, 'Sinbad' and his crew find a magical urn and are soon transported to another planet by a ruthless and vengeful 'Jinn' bent on freeing his race who have been imprisoned for millennia and then laying waste to the ones responsible..."

"'Sinbad has always been one of more popular titles in our library, " said Darren G. Davis, Publisher of Bluewater Productions. "It certainly lends itself to a big-budget tentpole movie".

Morningside and banking partner, Pablo Antoniazzi, Director of the Brazilian Bank, Estratejia Investimentos, S.A. have co-ventured to structure the financing for the film, attaching writer Paul J. Salamoff to draft the screenplay.

Bluewater Production's newest issue of "Sinbad: Rogue of Mars" will be available April 2011.
