"The Time to Call for Diversity Is Now" for Arabian Nights Movies
Warner Bros. is set to make a 7-film series based on the Arabian Nights. And screenwriter Zack Stentz (Thor, X-Men: First Class) says the time is now for people to call for the cast to be diverse and not whitewashed.
Warner Bros. is developing a 7-film series based on The Arabian Nights. I really hope they look at the great pool of Middle Eastern actors.— Zack Stentz (@MuseZack) July 23, 2014
...actually, not just Middle Eastern. Aladdin was technically from western China! Point being, the time to call for diversity is NOW...— Zack Stentz (@MuseZack) July 23, 2014
hft if they can make it work. Also, flashbacks to the 2000 miniseries on ABC tbh.
