SyFy Will Air Sinbad
by Ron Rego 9/6/12
When I was young, I use to love the Sinbad movies and I am happy to say that SyFy is bringing Sinbad back with their own version.
It will be a 12-part series from BBC Worldwide/Sky 1. The series will star Elliot Knight as the seafaring adventurer and "Lost's" Naveen Andrews as his arch-nemesis, Lord Akbari. There will be other SyFy faces that will be familiar as well as others. Sophie Okonedo ("Hotel Rwanda"), Timothy Spall ("The King's Speech") and Dougray Scott ("Ever After") are set for special guest appearances, with regulars that will include Elliot Cowan as Norwegian sailor Gunnar, Marama Corlett as jewel-thief Rina, Estella Daniels as aristocrat Nala, Junix Inocian as the Cook and Dimitri Leonidas as Doctor Anwar.
"Sinbad" will start on Syfy April 2013.
