So taken away was Lord Of The Rings series producer
Barrie M Osborne with Kamal Hassans latest film
Vishwaroop, that he decided to produce a film that would
star Hassan who will also helm it.
really not the right time to talk about it, but Osborne
watched Vishwaroop and suggested we do something together,
said Hassan in a statement.
is said that right after the screening of Vishwaroop
in Los Angeles recently, Osborne got in touch with the
actor-director and asked him to find a suitable script
that he would both direct and star in. Initially Hassan
didnt take the matter seriously but Osborne was
so persistent that Hassan had to consider the offer.
He has since zeroed in on a suitable subject.
known for his big-budget Hollywood productions such
as Dick Tracy, The Big Chill and Fandango (the film
that apparently inspired Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara),
has liked Hassans script after which production
details are being worked out.
has also produced The Great Gatsby, the screen adaptation
of Scott Fitzgeralds novel that has Amitabh
Bachchan in a cameo role.
