Paramount Pictures is in talks with the Chinese government and a Shanghai film company to produce a superhero movie whose tentative title is Super Terracotta Warriors (also reported as Rise of the Terracotta Warriors) which sounds totally f*cking metal. It will also have aliens.
The film will feature animated versions of the warriors, who will be “transplanted in today’s world at a time when aliens are invading and the world needs them.” This masterpiece will be produced by the Shanghai Film Group, a former Marvel executive, and Paramount Pictures.
According to The Guardian:
The Shanghai Film Group has been approached by a number of studios, including Paramount, to collaborate on the project. Producer Avi Arad, who has worked on superhero fare such as Marvel’s Iron Man and rival studio Sony’s Spider-Man movies, is said to be the film’s main architect.
Superheroes. Animation. Iron Man. Aliens. Terracotta. Warriors. Perhaps Schwarzenegger’s visit to the tomb in December was what got this whole thing started.
