New Sinbad movie trilogy from Sinbad: Rogue of Mars comic

Bluewater Entertainment is at it again! They seem to have a knack for pumping out comics about hot trends and cashing in, so it was surprising to hear that they dug up the old Sinbad trilogy. Sinbad: Rogue of Mars will both continue the previous storyline as well as begin a new trilogy of its own, which has been optioned by Morningside Entertainment. If you're wondering how the heck this Persian sailor wound up in space then here's the synopsis for the comic that's set to release in April this year:

"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 [sic] and then laying waste to the ones responsible."

That sounds a bit silly to me, but I would be the first person to drool over a darker 2D/CGI spiritual sister to Treasure Planet if it has the same art style as the comic, whose cover can be seen on the right side of the image above.

As for executive producer Barry Schneer's thoughts on the new trilogy, he feels "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." The comic's creator, Paul J. Salamoff, is working on the screenplay so hopefully the 2012 fantasy adventure film will be worth getting excited for!
