Hayden Christensen will star in a Paramount movie dedicated to the famous Venetian merchant and traveler Marco Polo. This is reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
The movie is said to be shot in an action-adventure style. The director is Rob Cohen, for whom the Chinese theme is familiar from the time of the painting "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor", released in 2008.
Let us remind you that Polo was the author of the "Book on the World's Diversity", which served as a valuable source of information about the geography, population, history of several countries at once, including Armenia, China, Iran and others. Some fragments of the book still raise doubts among scientists, but in general, science does not doubt the authenticity of the work.
The story of Marco Polo has been movieed several times. In particular, the Netflix video service released a series of the same name in 2014.
Christensen's last movie work at the time of this writing was his role in the movie "In Exile", which also takes place in China. Most of all, the actor is known to viewers around the world for his role as Anakin Skywalker in the new Star Wars trilogy. Rob Cohen released the highly successful thriller The Fan in 2015.
