There are often times in Hollywood, when a new movie is being made and many people become excited about it, before it all goes quiet and we do not actually get to see any finished article. That has certainly been the case with the big budget movie Empires of the Deep, which was being billed as the Chinese blockbuster to rival Avatar.
There is no doubt that there are plenty of people around who have already heard a little about what to expect from the movie but, for those of you wanting to know more, Empires of the Deep had been officially described as "Set in a mythical world, the story of an unlikely love story between a young human and a mermaid." With the big budget this project has, this could well make for some exciting viewing.
Actress Olga Kurylenko had been cast as the Mermaid Queen and things did look like they were going well for a while, with an Empires of the Deep trailer even getting released a few years back. Since then though, everything has gone silent on the project and it seems that everyone involved in the movie has vanished, making it look like the film has been completely scrapped.
The Empires of the Deep trailer was less than impressive and there was talk of there being a number of post-production issues, as well as the cost of the movie continuing to rise and rise. It looks highly unlikely that we are ever going to get to see Olga Kurylenko appearing on the big screen in Empires of the Deep, which is very disappointing. Maybe somebody could get the project aired on SyFy?
