Chuck Russell

Chuck Russell, who spent time in the cinematic desert with THE SCORPION KING, is about to have a lot of sand in his life again. Russell has signed on to direct a new film adaptation of ARABIAN NIGHTS, co-written by Russell and Chuck P. Ambrose.

Russell has a pretty diverse directing resume that includes: an Arnold Schwarzenegger action film with ERASER, the Jim Carrey comedy THE MASK, as well as NIGHTMARTE ON ELM STREET 3: DREAM WARRIORS.

According to Variety, Russell's ARABIAN NIGHTS is a "new spin on the classic" story. Russell's take "follows a young commander who, after his king is killed in a palace coup, joins forces with Sinbad, Aladdin, and his genie to rescue Scheherazade and her kingdom from dark powers".

One big - but not too shocking - thing about Russell's version is that it will be in 3D. That seems to be a hot trend right now, so I doubt anybody will be blown away by this decision.

Production is set to begin in April on Russell's ARABIAN NIGHTS.
