EMPIRES OF THE DEEP Has Deep Pockets - Will Hit Screens In 2011

Jim here. The most expensive movie China has ever bankrolled has been shot over the past 6 months (via Variety). The EMPIRES OF THE DEEP production has a $130 million budget and is being directed in 3D by Canadian Michael French. Apparently a year of post-production is required and it will see screens in the summer or Christmas of 2011.

Bond girl Olga Kurylenko (QUANTUM OF SOLACE) plays a mermaid queen and Anthony Arendt (AVATAR) is a consulting stereographer.

Set in ancient Greece, the story tells about a young man’s adventure in the undersea mermaid kingdom in order to save his father, while encountering ferocious sea monsters and gets involved in large-scale battles in the seabed between mermaids, monsters and demons.


I don't really know what to make of this project.
Normally I am quite enthusiastic about new 3D projects that clearly have momentum - sorry - I am not convinced yet.
We will see.
