Fox Star Studios inks multiple film deal with Vipul Shah

MUMBAI: The pan-Asian Twentieth Century Fox and Star joint venture (JV) company Fox Star Studios has inked a multiple-film deal with producer Vipul Amrutlal Shah, who has made films like Namastey London and Singh is Kinng.

The deal includes the development and production of a visual effects (VFX) driven fantasy action movie and a romantic comedy as well as a first look deal on Shah’s future projects. The VFX event film will be supported by a team of visual effects directors from Hollywood and supervised by Fox’s in-house visual effects team.

Fox Filmed Entertainment chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos said, "We are happy to announce our creative partnership with Vipul Shah. His talent and demonstrated understanding of Indian audiences, together with our Studio’s marketing and financial expertise, will provide audiences of Indian cinema with films that will set new benchmarks in India and around the world.”

"I am excited to work with Fox Star Studios India. This deal gives me the opportunity to develop innovative concepts and work with the best talent to create films that will appeal to audiences around the globe,” added Shah. “We have to partner with the best technical and creative talent from around the world while yet keeping the Indian soul in our films intact.”

Fox Star Studios India CEO Vijay Singh said, "Our relationship with Shah is special – a shared vision to create global quality content, but with an Indian soul for Indian audiences across the world. We are committed to accessing and demonstrating Twentieth Century Fox and Star’s global strengths in the development, production, distribution and marketing of Bollywood films."

Singh further added, “The Indian film industry is expected to nearly double in size over the next five years – from $2.4 billion in 2007 to $4.4 billion in 2012.”
