The Dhs400 million shoot for “Arabian Nights” has been delayed until the autumn to avoid the gruelling UAE summer heat. The film, which will feature actors Sir Anthony Hopkins, Zac Efron and WWE wrestler Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, will now go ahead in October after its Abu Dhabi producers warned the director that filming in the summer could be disastrous.
“They do not understand what the conditions are like here,” said Akram Sabry, general manager of Sky Events Management, which is producing the film. “I told them that it’s not like in America. Temperatures here reach 45 degrees or more. They would not be able to film.”
Sabry said that pre-production work has now been completed and Hollywood director, Chuck Russell, will be flying into Abu Dhabi in two weeks to oversee the work.
“His crew has already been here and we worked out the paperwork,” said Sabry. Despite delays, final filming approval has been granted by twofour54, the Abu Dhabi media hub that is overseeing the project. The film is based on the classic Arab tale about a princess who wins her freedom by telling fantastic tales of Sinbad, Aladdin and other characters. Filming will take place in the desert and Abu Dhabi’s Emirates Palace hotel will also be used.
It is hoped the film will be released in late 2014. [Source]

I have just opened a fansite dedicated to ABC Family’s hit series, “The Lying Game.” I have been a fan of this series and the cast for quite some time now. I couldn’t find any decent websites dedicated to “The Lying Game” as a whole, which is why I decided to open my own.
Are there any “The Lying Game” fans out there? If so, please visit my new website as I will do my best to provide you with all the latest news, information, spoilers, promos, sneak peaks and more! Thanks a lot!
I have added some miscellaneous photos of Zac Efron from the set of “Are We Officially Dating?”. Enjoy viewing them!

“The Paperboy,” which stars Nicole Kidman, Matthew McConaughey, John Cusack, and Zac Efron, will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on January 22nd, 2013. Make sure that you buy your own copy to show your support for Zac in this way!
A sexually and racially charged film noir from Oscar-nominated director Lee Daniels (“Precious”), “The Paperboy” takes audiences deep into the backwaters of steamy 1960s South Florida, as investigative reporter Ward Jansen (Matthew McConaughey) and his partner Yardley Acheman (David Oyelowo) chase a sensational, career-making story. With the help of Ward’s younger brother Jack (Zac Efron) and sultry death-row groupie Charlotte Bless (Nicole Kidman), the pair tries to prove violent swamp-dweller Hillary Van Wetter (John Cusack) was framed for the murder of a corrupt local sheriff. Based on the provocative bestselling novel by Pete Dexter (Mulholland Falls, Rush), “The Paperboy” peels back a sleepy small town’s decades-old façade of Southern gentility to reveal a quagmire of evil as dark as a Florida bayou.
