Sir Patrick Stewart travels to another destination where no one has gone before in the action film Sinbad: The Fifth Voyage based on the Middle Eastern fairy tale of Sinbad the sailor from the celebrated “Arabian Nights” book. In the movie, the sailor crosses a perilous desert of magic to save the Sultan’s first born daughter from an evil sorcerer and meets fairy tale creatures such as the Goliath Crab monster, the Cyclops, and the skeletons in the dead tree forest. Sir Patrick is the narrator of Sinbad’s journey.
Primed for release in 2012, the $22 million dollar venture is produced by Giant Flick Films LLC in association with executive producer Steven Paul’s Crystal Edge LLC, an affiliate of Crystal Sky LLC. The film will use a unique combination of state of the art visual FX and old school stop-animation (Dynamation) technology taking the audience back in time of classic Saturday matinee films originally brought to the silver screen in the 1950s.
Persian-American actor/director Shahin Sean Solimon, who plays Sinbad, says he was a fan of the original “Arabian Nights,” tale. He also shares that the production gathered artists from around the world to create this new version of Sinbad’s adventures. “We wanted to create something very unique for the fans of Sinbad and bring back the traditional style of movie making. We are excited and looking forward to giving young and old audiences a chance to experience this movie!”
