Rob Minkoff Goes On A “Chinese Odyssey”

Rob Minkoff (“The Lion King,” “Forbidden Kingdom”) is attached to direct the 3D English-language action-adventure “Chinese Odyssey” for his new production company Tiger 62 Media reports the trades.

Described as a supernatural ocean-set adventure story, the Homer-esque story follows a hero on a journey to fulfil his destiny and along the way faces ancient mysteries, deadly sea monsters and several larger-than-life characters.

China Film Group and Beijing Galloping Horse Film & TV will produce and finance the project which will be shot in China.
