Mermaid Island

A piece of promotional artwork has been released for an upcoming US/China co-produced fantasy film called Mermaid Island. Although not much known about the movie at this point other than the story is about a young man who falls in love with a mermaid, it seems that there will be some peripheral giant monster content, given the huge ape and lobster creature seen in the teaser poster as well as the enormous whale thing riding the wave in the background. Apparently the director currently attached to the project is Jean-Christophe Comar (who goes by the moniker “Pitof”), a French visual effects director-turned-film director who is somewhat notorious in North American movie circles for helming the 2004 bomb Catwoman starring Halle Barry. I suppose that could be good or bad news depending on your personal tastes.
