PARAMOUNT TO PRODUCE 13TH CENTURY CHINA SET 'MARCO POLO' FANTASY ADVENTURE MOVIE! DELIGHTFUL 'THE GRAND SEDUCTION' TRAILER WITH TAYLOR KITSCH AND BRENDAN GLEESON

  'MARCO POLO' 13TH CENTURY
 FANTASY ADVENTURE MOVIE
While we are following the production of luxurious Netflix historical TV series on MARCO POLO which will have Lorenzo Richelmy in the lead role, Paramount has teamed up with China Film to produce a big screen movie on the famous adventurer! According to 'Deadline', with the plan to conquer world market,  the movie adaptation will be based on historical context of the famed 13th century explorer but, differently from the upcoming TV show, it will go beyond the traditional “biographic” type story by also using fantasy elements. Although no names have been revealed so far, the director will be an experienced action adventure moviemaker from USA with A league actors both from USA and China in the cast.
 DEZZY'S HISTORY LESSON
Real Marco Polo, the Italian merchant, was inspired to go to Asia by the stories of his uncles who apparently met Kublai Khan. He went on a journey with them which lasted incredible 24 years. Instead of a welcome, after his return he was imprisoned for almost five years. During his stay in the dungeon he dictated his stories to a cellmate.

  5. Hey, you're featuring ANOTHER Canadian movie -- "The Grand Seduction." It is set in Newfoundland and has some of that province's best actors in it. I'm really looking forward to seeing it! Coincidentally, I just saw its trailer today for the first time at the movie theatre when I went to see "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" which is a fantastic movie, loved it!

  10. Marco Polo has always fascinated me. That illustration is really interesting and so different from other concepts about how he looked.

    Can't wait for that comedy to come. I'm in sore need of a good one of those.
