Fishing boat owners are eagerly awaiting the release of the highly anticipated animated feature Fish Sandwich, a new film from director Chris Gabel and producer Joe Gabel, and are hopeful the project will attract the kind of attention that the hit TV series is known for.
“I can’t wait to be able to show the world what we have created together,” said Gabel.
“We have created this new, beautiful movie that’s a beautiful story and I am so excited to share it with you.”
Fish Sandwich is a film set in the 1960s, where fishermen are in the throes of the Great Depression.
The film stars the likes of Jack Nicholson and Kate Beckinsale, and will be available on digital platforms in early 2018.
The project has been in development for several years, with the first trailer being shown at Cannes last year.
The latest news about the film comes in the form of a new Facebook post by the producer.
“This is what we were thinking: ‘I’m just going to do this movie, because we can do this,’ ” said Gael.
“It’s just really, really important to get this out there.
I want people to be inspired to watch this movie and it will make a difference to the people who make a living in this industry.”
Gabel said that while the project is being developed for the digital platforms, the production will be shot in HD, and the film will be presented on a big screen, so that viewers will be able see it with a big, 4K screen.
“We’ve been working with a great cinematographer, and we’re very excited about it,” said director Gabel in the post.
“There’s a lot of work that needs to be done to bring this to the digital screen, but we’re working with some great cinematography.
It’s just so exciting to be a part of this project and see it.”
