Empires of the Deep _ Trailer
A very wealthy Chinese real estate tycoon wrote a script for an epic underwater sci-fi fantasy adventure flick and set about to co-finance the film. Monica Bellucci was announced to star in it. Catwoman director Pitof was hired to direct it. The late Empire Strikes Back director Irvin Kershner was brought aboard to produce it. All three very quickly bailed on the project. That was in 2009. Jonathan Laurence was then brought in to direct and when he abruptly departed the project he wasn?t quiet about his disdain for how bad the production was (you can find his statements burying the production online). Michael French was hired to complete the film and ex-Bond girl Olga Kurylenko was hired to look sexy while made-up to look like the lovechild of Mer-Man and Evil Lynn.
