"This isnt a project that you will be able to do the night before"
hollywood sure has an easy time finding brown and black people to play terrorists, thugs, drug dealers, gangsters, servants, “barbarians”, hypersexualized or desexualized caricatures but all of a sudden you need a lead role and
gosh where did they go i swear we put them here right after zero dark thirty??
Can’t even find them to play black and brown people in movies ABOUT black and brown people.

Warner Bros. & 3 Arts Acquire a 7-Film ‘Arabian Nights’ Franchise
Deadline tells me (haha, “tells me,” like we friends) that Warner Brothers Pictures and frequent producing collaborator 3 Arts have purchased a 90-page “script-ment” (a treatment with some script-y elements like dialogue) for a seven-film franchise based on One Thousand and One Nights, the classical Arabic text that spawned the international followings of such fables as Ali Baba, Sinbad and Scheherazde.
Find out more about the new franchise, what I think and what WB and 3 Arts cannot do if this is to work after the jump!
This excites me.
