Poster unveiled for 2012 fantasy film Sinbad: Rogue of Mars

Morningside Entertainment has optioned Bluewater Comics' Sinbad: Rogue of Mars to adapt into an epic action adventure fantasy feature for 2012. A continuation of the Sinbad films that started in 1958 with The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, and followed in the 1970's with The Golden Voyage of Sinbad and Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger, Rogue of Mars is an updated sequel rather than a reboot.

Executive Producer Barry Schneer revealed that Rogue of Mars is the first of a planned new trilogy that will bring this beloved character to a whole new generation while still showing respect to the original fans, "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 that also includes Wrath of the Titans and Jason and the Argonauts, says Darren G. Davis, Publisher of Bluewater Comics. "It certainly lends itself to a big-budget tentpole movie."

Morningside along with its banking partner, Pablo Antoniazzi, Director of the Brazilian Bank, Estratejia Investimentos, S.A. have co-ventured to structure the financing for this epic film. Recently, the group has tapped Screenwriter and Comic Creator Paul J. Salamoff to write the screenplay for a reported mid six figures. Salamoff is the author of the critically acclaimed comic series Logan's Run: Last Day. He also has a number of films currently in development.

Bluewater Comics' Sinbad: Rogue of Mars new graphic novel will be available in April 2011. Primarily distributed through traditional retail outlets, the graphic novel will also be available through several online venues including Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.

  1. I am so excited to see this movie. The poster just shows me and proves to me that this movie is going to be the best movie in 2012. There is going to be a lot of great movies to be released in 2012, but Sinbad will take the trophy for the best film of 2012. Just look at the poster? Doesn't it make you want to see the movie? I believe so.

  3. Whoa that poster is cool looking. Great advertisement for the movie. This movie cannot be a bust. I saw all the Sinbad films from the past. I can tell you they were all well made and produced. Although made an era that technology was still in its infant stages, they still managed to make amazing sci-fi films. But now we are in a time where technology is truly at its peak, and with the technology we have this movie should be a huge hit with all age groups. We will have to wait until 2012. Can't wait!
