Conquistador Entertainment to screen 3D Entertainment Films doc in Cannes.
Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed on to narrate Wonders Of The Sea 3D co-directed by Jean-Michel Cousteau and Jean-Jacques Mantello.
Schwarzenegger is producing and will feature in the opening sequence.
Conquistador Entertainment will introduce the project to buyers and screen it in Cannes and the producers have earmarked a global release later in the year.
Cousteau, son of the legendary oceanographer Jacques Cousteau, shot the film over the course of three years in locations spanning Fiji to the Bahamas and explores the beauty of ocean life and the threats to its existence.
“I am delighted to be narrating the first feature documentary directed by Jean-Michel Cousteau, a man that I have admired for years,” Schwarzenegger said.
“He was an absolute jewel to work with and I love his enthusiasm. When I first saw the footage of this film, I was blown away and I immediately wanted to be involved. It is not only an incredible visual feast but it is also conveying a strong message about the need to protect our ocean.
“The perfect use of 3D in this film gives you the feeling that you are actually diving with all these creatures. I am pleased to not only lend my voice to the movie but also to get involved in its promotion.”
