TREASURE OF ALI BABA & THE FORTY THIEVES Sets Martin Campbell To Helm ‘Arabian Nights’ Folklore Adaptation
An adventure novelist gets caught up in a global conspiracy and a hunt for a mysterious antiquity after discovering that his father had a map to the legendary treasure of Ali Baba. He must team up with a brilliant cartographer to locate the artifacts before they fall into the hands of the 40 Thieves—an ancient group who has quietly become a powerful, international syndicate of criminals in high-ranking corporate positions.
Said Campbell of Ali Baba: “This is a great opportunity to do something with international appeal and huge franchise potential. I want this to be my Indiana Jones.”.
Campbell’s latest, The Foreigner, opens theatrically in China later this month before its U.S. bow courtesy of STX on October 13.
