Liam Hemsworth, Zac Efron, Anthony Hopkins and Dwayne Johnson are Heading to the UAE!

13 Nov 2012

Get ready girls! Liam Hemsworth and Zac Efron, who're two of Hollywood's hottest, are coming to Abu Dhabi and Al Ain in March to film a new version of Arabian Nights

Zac and Liam? This may be too much for us to take! The two T'Town heartthrobs along with screen legend Anthony Hopkins and Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, are coming to our shores in March to film a remake of Arabian Nights. It's already been announced that the filming will take place in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain. Time for us to start planning a mini-break!

“We have got the necessary approvals and photography begins in March,” Mohammad Saeed Al Mazroui, president of Sky Events Management in Abu Dhabi, said in a press release. He also cited the UAE's "beautiful nature" as one of the draws for the film.

The film will be directed by thriller director Chuck Russell, who was behind A Nightmare on Elm Street 3 but also funnier flicks like The Mask and one of our Eighties faves, Girls Just Want to Have Fun!

Anthony Hopkins will be playing the villain in the film and The Rock will lend his talents to the character of Sinbad while Ali Baba will most likely be played by our favourite Hemsworth brother. No news on the ladies in the flick yet, but we've got our fingers crossed that they're as A-list as the men!
