"Rogue Of Mars" in IMAX 3D

Development continues on the IMAX 3D feature "Sinbad: Rogue Of Mars", based on Bluewater Productions graphic novel series, recently optioned by Morningside Entertainment to adapt into a major motion picture for 2012.

A continuation of the "Sinbad" films that began 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 of the 'Sinbad' character.

Executive Producer Barry Schneer revealed that "Rogue of Mars" is the first of a new trilogy to bring the adventures of 'Sinbad' to a new generation of 'sword 'n sorcery' fans .

"I am thrilled to continue the amazing legacy my uncle, Charles Schneer began with '7th Voyage' and be able to 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 are transported to another planet by a ruthless 'Jinn' bent on freeing his race who have been imprisoned for millennia..."

"'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" is now available.
