SINBAD: ROGUE OF MARS poster and live action film in 2012?!?! Produced by the Son of Schneer!!!

Hey folks, Harry here...   Well...  gosh, I've been wanting to see SINBAD on Mars since I read about it in Starlog magazine at some point in the late 1970's.   Now, the son of Charles Schneer is bringing that vision to life.   If you're a talented creative soul in this business that remembers those articles and those dreams of Harryhausen, Sinbad & Mars...   help this project along its path!   Seriously.   This is kinda uber cool!

 

 

 

MORNINGSIDE ENTERTAINMENT OPTIONS BLUEWATER COMIC’S SINBAD TO SET SAIL IN 2012

 

Morningside Entertainment has optioned Bluewater Comic’s “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 Harryhausennever 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 Production’s “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.

    by catlettuce4

    It's cool news, but I question the timing. Are they trying to steal the thunder of John Carter or capitalize on any potential popularity it has? Will the sudden strange appearance of two throwback swashbucker/mars movies make audiences stay away from both? It's kind of weird, that's all. I'm all for continuing the Sinbad series though. Hope they do it justice. And call me crazy, but I always kind of wished Stephen Sommers would make a Sinbad movie starring Oded Fehr as Sinbad. Well, I think it'd be cool, anyhow...

And face it: The creatures that appear in the fire at the start of "Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger" look a lot like John Carter-esque Martians.

    SmokingRobot: March 9, 2012...and this sounds LAME

    by Big Dumb Ape

    SmokingRobot, after some back and forth to select a release date -- basically because Disney was playing some kind of fucked-up scheduling game against Fox, who was likewise trying to pick a release date for Ridley Scott's PROMETHEUS film -- Disney finally settled on March 9, 2012 as the opening day for JOHN CARTER OF MARS. As for this SINBAD film, I grew up loving the Harryhausen films...I would love to see a new Sinbad movie done in the tone, flavor and tradition of the Harryhausen films... ...But I have to agree with others. Right off the bat this sounds less like an original idea that I could give 2 shits about, and instead sounds more like they're obviously trying to pimp their way off any heat generated by JOHN CARTER OF MARS. Sorry, I don't care if it's based on a comic that's out now or whatever. As an older geek, transporting Sinbad to fucking Mars instantly makes me roll my eyes and strikes me as an obvious rip off...oops, I meant "creative tip of the hat"...of Burroughs's work.

    Sorry , Harry, but "his 4th film adventure"...?

    by Bindweed

    I would have thought no-one could have ignored 1940's "Sinbad the Sailor" with Douglas Fairbanks Jnr. Not to mention the many, many others including a silent version, a slew of Italian sword-and-sandals versions in the sixties and even an Indian movie. Sinbad and the other 1001 Nights have been a deep, deep well that adventure movie makers have drawn from since the medium was invented. I'm surprised you missed that omission from the promo material. And personally, I think that the fantasy of the original setting is more than capable of providing a great cgi adventure franchise, possibly more encouraging to imagination and creative thinking than an extra-terrestrial threat, which sounds lazy to me. And not a little hackneyed.

    by batphantom

    The only creative in the press release is the writer, Paul J. Salamoff, whose only previous screenwriting credit is ALIEN SIEGE. He's a puppeteer/makeup artist, and evidently writer of the "critically acclaimed" LOGAN'S RUN: LAST DAY. So the son of a legendary producer with no experience got the rights to a legendary license to make a high-concept sequel to a fifty year old classic with a ridiculously short production deadline. Yeah, this will go well. You gotta love the IMAX3D tag on the poster. I almost feel bad for anyone who gets attached to this. Of course, I could be totally wrong. This could be a labour of love. But I really, really doubt it.

    by batphantom

    Do you really think it's realistic of them to announce a 2012 release for an effects-heavy film that's not even in production yet? This sounds like a call for investors, not an announcement of a solid project. They've got one unproven creative asset announced, a producer (Steve Perry) whose contributions to his many listed films are unknown, a whole lot of "legacy", and that's it. It seems like Harryhousen's supporting family members who are trying to break in to Hollywood by using one of his biggest successes. They're "developing" a massive studio in New Mexico which, based on news reports, is in danger of falling through thanks to New Mexico's decision to cap tax credits. Perhaps this Sinbad announcement is supposed to show their intentions so they can secure financing for the facility. My point is, this whole announcement smacks of commerce rather than craft. It would be foolish to get excited about this based on one simple poster that gives the illusion that this film is ready to go.

    by redkamel

    If a djinn is trying to free his people, and dealing with Sinabd in a sword and sorcery adventrue...why the fuck is he going to Mars? The point of going to mars is...aliens. Martians. Another planet. None of which is needed in this story as Sinbad could easily go to another land, or the undiscovered "land of the djinns". Both of these fit with the character more. Adding mars is just for stupid sci fi effect, which they HOPEFULLY won't play up (pew pew!, "What manner of craft is this? A star-ship?") I don't care if it was a comic book either. Stupid idea for a movie. Why not make a real Sinbad adventure movie?

    Geoffrey, shut up and give it a rest already

    by Big Dumb Ape

    Geoffrey, give it a rest with your sanctimonious attitude. You bitched: "You lame ass fuckers are pathetic. You've never have the balls or the smarts to get into the film business so you shit all over everybody that has. Every time a project is announced, a wave of derisive comments are sure to follow. Why are you assholes even on this site? It's obvious you don't like movies in general." Dip shit, its a well-known fact that many of the posters at AICN are, in fact, actually in the business -- to some degree or another -- and they enjoy coming here to trade some geek love or criticisms on the side. And yes, I have no problem saying that as someone who works in Hollywood "in the business" myself. Besides, you don't have to be in the business to love or appreciate movies or to have the kind of mindset that can properly be critical of movies or the business/marketing decisions surrounding them. You also bitched to Has_Snyder: "Two days ago you had no idea what or who John Cater is so shut the fuck up." Well, on that antagonistic note, Geoffrey, feel free to drop to your knees and kiss my ass. The fact that EVERYONE here is noting that the timing of this movie -- or at the very least, the announcement of it -- is clearly intended to ride the coat tails of Andrew Stanton's JOHN CARTER movie pretty much shows that people here know "what or who" John Carter is. So again, stop being such a sanctimonious ass. Or given the way that you've got your panties in a bunch and you're going post by post to attack the other people here, just admit that you're someone who was involved with the comic or is tied to this shitty production and you're out posting to do damage control on the bad geek word of mouth this is already getting. And on that note, let me repeat my previous post. This sounds like an outright pimp job of John Carter or Burroughs' work...it sounds creatively lazy...and it probably won't matter since there's probably a high chance this thing won't ever get off the ground anyway.

    In Response to Several Comments

    by TravelSteveR

    First and foremost, this is not old news. True, the project was announced back in January, but the poster was just released, which is why this article was posted. Second, Harryhausen announced SINBAD ON MARS back in the 70s as a possible follow-up to EYE OF THE TIGER (along with SINBAD AND THE SEVEN WONDERS OF THE WORLD). Based on his dissatisfaction with the whole Hollywood system, he abandoned them, along with the sequel to CLASH OF THE TITANS called FORCE OF THE TROJANS. Stating that the new Sinbad project is being made to, as some put it, capitalize on JOHN CARTER is ironic since Harryhausen was going to make a JOHN CARTER film but never got it off the ground. It sounds to me that this film is being made because the time is ripe for some good, old-fashioned fantasy. Also, one poster stated that Harryhausen's family is trying to capitalize on his name--if anyone is trying to capitalize,it would be Schneer's nephew, and Schneer was Harryhausen's friend and business associate, and since the new venture is based on a Bluewater comic that Harryhausen licensed and endorsed, it's a logical progression to move it from print to screen. No one is capitalizing on anything. If that is the case, then all those Peter Jackson, George Lucas, and Steven Spielberg movies are rip-offs of films Harryhausen made from the 1940s-1980s. It is a silly argument, one that should be ignored. It's been 34 years since a Harryhausen Sinbad film, and, lord knows, if Hollywood is remaking everything these days, it will be nice to see a film that is a throwback to another era rather than a feeble attempt to remake something that was good in its original incarnation with no need for a remake. As for the why would Sinbad go to Mars, how would he get there, and how would he breathe, last time I looked this is called a fantasy, and in fantasy anything is possible. If the genie's people were originally from Mars, maybe he is trying to bring more of them here. The bottom line is "who cares?" When and if the film gets made, I will be first in line to buy a ticket. As a final note, I get really tired of people blasting something before it even gets off the ground. As soon as projects are announced, people trash them without seeing a single frame of film. At least give this film a chance. If you see the film and hate it, you can say or write whatever you want, but until you do, find something else to occupy your time. By the way, another Sinbad project called SINBAD: THE FIFTH VOYAGE is in the works, and it does utilize stop motion animation for its creatures. Sad to say, as soon as the teaser trailer for it came out, people posted how horrible it looked. I've decided that some people are just inherently miserable and are not happy until they make everyone else around them miserable as well. It has been said that "misery loves company." If that is the case, I would prefer some other company.

    HAHAHA Geoffrey Fourmyle is in the industry?

    by Starship Captain

    When someone puts other Talkbackers down by copping an attitude and then claims they work in the industry, it's a sure bet they are either a a no-talent, bottom of the barrel script reader or a piss-ant, entry level assistant who spends his day answering phones or making xeroxes. Given the bullshit Geoffrey's is flinging, he probably works in a catering van. Enjoy making your latest batch of pasta or sandwich bites for the stars, mister "in the business." Try not to burn anything. The Talkbackers here are right. This idea is terrible. The story should be Earth-based, with Sinbad going to some exotic parts of the world so the movie has the feel of the previous films. Sending Sinbad to Mars is one of the most retarded ideas I've heard. Its not high concept, it's utter bullshit. Hollywood is scraping the bottom of the barrel these days. The writers at these pitch meetings must have the brains of 10-year olds and say "it will look cool on screen" a lot.

    yep your wit and acuteness of insight is right up there with Braindrain, you poor sackless load of shit. Keep backfiring more desperate blanks and finding a load of your premature cum droplets flying into your face. Then get more pissy pants as you have to experience everyone watching you trying to wipe it away while you ignorantly munch on a Mac-Daddy like it makes you a player hitting all the right notes. So Pathetic. Braindrain is a total Vagina, and you are his Douche. Lame.

    Super Dynamation

    by Ron Cole

    I'll add my voice to the number of others I see have already commented in the hopes of seeing some new Dynamation effects! I always did wonder how exactly Sinbad The Sailor ends up on MARS??? But hey, that's the magic of the movies. :)

  • you two are such a sorry suck-ass joke of self-congratulatory back-packing/cock-waggling its almost laughable... but no just a bad joke

    do your 12 yr old girlfriends find that one hilarious?

    by Smack_Teddy

    or are they just sniggering because they still can't feel anything when you stick your stub in their gloryholes?

    like i said Braindrain:

    Your Dads dead and he had no time for your whore mother, who's shitty shop got shut down, and you woefully underperformed for all the 12-14 year olds that were the only audience who would take you seriously post castration from the ordeal. Deal with it.

    Sinbad Rogue of Mars, best movie in 2012!

    by comicguy1964

    I remember as a boy going to see Sinbad. The films were well made and produced. The movies were fun to watch. Boys wanted to be Sinbad and girls liked Sinbad. This new Sinbad no question will probably be bigger and stronger. And with the new technology we have now. This new Sinbad Rogue of Mars will break box office records. John Carter of Mars has nothing on Sinbad. The John Carter books stunk. In my opinion the books were boring. Sinbad was exciting. Sinbad will take out John Carter for the reigns of Mars and Hollywood supremacy. I will be there to see Sinbad!!!

    Sinbad Rogue of Mars, best movie in 2012!

    by comicguy1964

    Whats this guy talking about Sinbad is looking to stir up interest to get funding. What BS is that. The movie is legit. The movie is coming out. The movie has a poster out. Its all over the web and blogs. This movie will come out. I know it will! Look it up buddy, they have the cred and pedigree of making blockbuster trend setting films. Apparently you know nothing of movies or the industry. Sinbad will come out, and I won't be surprised if the movie breaks Avatar's box office record. Yes, I said it! Quote me!

    Loved Sinbad as a Kid

    by Wcwlkr

    I still remember watching these with my Dad on lazy Sunday mornings! I loved these movies. This would be a lot of fun to see on the big screen.

    I love Sinbad!!!!! Awesome Poster!!!!

    by Blake

    I am a huge Sinbad fan. My pop took me to watch the first Sinbad is a young boy. Since then I have been a Sinbad fan. I have watched all the Sinbad movies. They were all well produced and directed. The Sinbad films opened up another genre of movies that the world had never seen before, sci-fi movies. Now this new movie, Sinbad Rogue of Mars is going to grace the silver screen. Sinbad is coming back to Hollywood. And with the new technology we have nowadays, this movie should break box office records. Can't wait for it's release. John Carter of Mars and the new Total Recall have nothing on Sinbad.

    Amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!`

    by Stan

    Wow what an incredible poster. Beautifully designed. Sinbad Rogue of Mars sounds like an exciting movie. The classic Sinbad movies were so fun. Those classic Sinbad films were ahead of its time back in those days. No one was making sci-fi films in those times. They were the first to do it Charles and Harry. Now Sinbad is coming back in the 21st century. 2012 Sinbad will grace the silver screen again. I can only imagine what surprises this new Sinbad movie has in store for us. I will be there on release day.
