Liquid Comics to make Deepak Chopra’s ‘Beyond’ into film

BANGALORE: Liquid Comics will be making ‘Beyond’, a film based on Deepak Chopra’s graphic novel story and screenplay.


Last year, Liquid Comics completed the management buyout of Virgin Comics (VC). Before the buyout, VC was led by the founding management team of Gotham Chopra, Sharad Devarajan and Suresh Seetharaman.


Filmmaker Suri Krishnamma will be directing the movie which is currently in development as a UK production. Liquid Comics Founders, Gotham Chopra and Sharad Devarajan, will produce the film with John Garland and Michael Dufficy.


Deepak Chopra, who created the story and wrote the screenplay, announced the deal, saying, “Beyond is a story about reality being multi-dimensional and how we can take journeys to realms we never dreamed of by separating the veils that partition our minds. I hope to open audiences‘ minds to the fact that all reality is a projection of a paradigm or worldview."


Beyond is a supernatural thriller about a businessman, Michael Morton, who arrives in India with his wife, Anna and son, Ty, on a vacation. While Michael is distracted on a phone call with an overseas colleague, Anna and Ty wander through a typically teeming Indian shopping bazaar.


Then the inexplicable happens - Ty watches as his mother wanders into a small store but never comes out. She’s vanished without a trace. Michael searches for his wife, at first irritated by her elusiveness, but soon turns frantic, as he can’t uncover any clue to her whereabouts.


Things then turn even stranger and desperate when Michael hears his wife’s whispering, crying for his help. Tracking the sounds, Michael and Ty are led on adventure of both physical and metaphysical danger as they stop at nothing to reunite their family.


Liquid Comics uses the medium of graphic novel publishing to develop properties for theatrical live-action films, animation and video games. It has created graphic novels with acclaimed filmmakers and creators including John Woo, Shekhar Kapur, Deepak Chopra, Guy Ritchie, Dave Stewart, Jonathan Mostow, Edward Burns, Nicolas Cage, and others.


It currently has a number of film and television projects in development including the Warner Bros. film adaptation of ‘Gamekeeper’ with director Guy Ritchie; ‘Virulents’ with director John Moore; ‘Voodoo Child’ with Saturn Films and Reliance; ‘The Leaves’ with Summit Entertainment and ‘The Stranded’, in development for television, with the Syfy Channel.

Judwa remake has an advantage over Chef

*Wrong time release and the film pays heavily. Much beyond its demerits.

Judwaa 2 hopes to entertain

*Judwaa 2 came after a long gap that was filled by mediocre and non-entertaining films. There were no films in the last few months which could draw out the families from home to watch a film. Two weeks before Diwali was not the right time to release a film but, to counter that, there was also a...
