Empires of the Deep: Another Mermaid Movie (?)
For a while now, rumors of a Chinese-American production entitled Empires of the Deep have swum around the web. Supposedly, the movie is an epic fantasy, kind of like "Star Wars under the sea.". Here's what IMDb says about it:
Set in a mythical world, the story of an unlikely love story between a young human and a mermaid.
Production photos abound on the web, but there doesn't seem to be an official release date. Here's a couple images of the film's conceptual art for the mermaids.
There's also apparently a leaked trailer on the Web, but for some reason I'm just not convinced. I've seen it, but it looks like it was just a test trailer and not the final product.
The actresses they've set to play the mermaids are beautiful (but of course they'd be - aren't all mermaids beautiful?) and though high fantasy really isn't my thing, for mermaids I'll definitely make an exception.
