Warner Bros Developing "Marco Polo" Movie

Posted: March 4th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Warner Bros Developing "Marco Polo" MovieSubmit Comment
Warner Bros is developing a feature film based on Marco Polo, and has attached director Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend) to helm. The studio bought the pitch from the writing team of Adam Cooper and Bill Collage (Accepted), who are penning the script.

Polo, a Venice merchant, traveled with his father and uncle through Asia for 24 years at a time when the Mongol empire of Kublai Khan stretched into Eastern Europe, menacing the Holy Roman Empire. According to Polo's "Il Milione," Khan asked Polo to serve as an ambassador, leading to his extensive travels throughout Asia on behalf of the Khan.

When Polo returned to Europe, Venice was at war with Genoa and he was imprisioned and dictated his stories to a cellmate before he was released in 1299.

The untitled film is seen as a fantasy-adventure rather than a biopic. "We see this as something that takes place in the Orient of our imagination amid the cultural clash of the East and the West," Cooper told Daily Variety.

I see this rivaling Sinbad of the Seven Seas starring Lou Ferrigno. We can only hope that it will be in 3-D.

I don't see the need to involve fantasy in this. His story is pretty awesome without it. I mean "in the Orient of our imagination"? C'mon, that sounds stupid.

''The orient of our imagination'', what the f*ck does that mean? Will it take place in that part of our brain that deems it necessary to copy the kung-fu movies we see in movies, I dont understand.

Ahhh... Great, Marco Polo action adventure.

I've already seen something like that - it starred Jack Pallance and Oliver Reed looking drunk and some "90210"-looking guy as Polo.

What's next? Ninja Genghis Khan? Ass-ripping Ptolemeus?
