Arabian Nights goes 3D

Mask director brings Arabian Nights to the big screen

Mask director Chuck Russell is bringing Arabian Nights back to the big screen – in 3D format.

The project, with an expected budget of $70 million – focuses on a young commander teaming up with Sinbad, Aladdin and his genie to free Scheherazade and her kingdom from evil.

The script for the action-adventure was penned by Russell and Barry P. Ambrose. According to the pair -“the use of a new generation of visual technologies, we will be able to quite literally take audiences around the world on a magic carpet ride.”
