Apart from being a rather fun drinking game, Marco Polo was also an intrepid adventurer and famous storyteller, who went backpacking long before it was the preserve of flip-flopped youngsters doing yoga on a beach, getting their hair braided and trying to 'find' themselves.
Anyway, it's for this reason (the traveling, not the drinking game) that Netflix has ordered a 9-episode Marco Polo series, which will chart the famous explorer's adventures in the Far East.
Kon-Tiki directors Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg will helm the series along with Dan Minahan (Game of Thrones), with filming due to kick off at Pinewood Studios, Malaysia, ahead of a late 2014 release.
All together now... Marco!.... Polo! Feels good, doesn't it?
