MUMBAI: Acclaimed Hollywood producer, Mark Canton, and Graphic India, acharacter entertainment company focused on creating superheroes, comics and stories through mobile and digital platforms, announced today that Canton will be developing and producing a live-action feature film based on Graphic?s superhero property, ?The Sadhu? through his production company, Atmosphere Entertainment.



Canton?s long list of blockbuster motion pictures include the film adaptation of Frank Miller?s graphic novel ?300,? ?The Immortals,? and the just released ?300: Rise of an Empire,? which opened last Friday (7) to a stellar worldwide weekend gross in excess of $133 million and is setting new box office records in numerous countries. Graphic India Co-Founders, Sharad Devarajan and Gotham Chopra, who will produce the film with Canton, also co-wrote the theatrical film screenplay for ?Warrior: Revenge of The Sadhu,? which is based on a new mobile comic series on the character to be launched later this year across India.



The story centers on James Jenson, A British soldier whose family is brutally murdered by a corrupt superior officer in the Indian colony of Bengal in 1858. Jenson escapes in the remote forests of India where he seeks refuge with the mysterious Indian mystics known as sadhus. After years of being trained in their supernatural arts, Jenson must decide whether to use his newfound powers for inner peaceand enlightenment as they are intended, or for justice against the people who murdered his family. Warrior: The Sadhu follows the journey of one man who barters his soul?s deliverance for his family?s honor.



Commenting on the project Canton added, ?In the same way Greek myths have captivated the imagination of audiences around the world, the screenplay by Gotham Chopra and SharadDevarajan for ?Warrior? taps into the mystical traditions and mythologies of India through an accessible action-packed adventure that I am confident will make a spectacular blockbuster film and will mark the birth of a new franchise.?



Sharad Devarajan, Co-Founder and CEO of Graphic India added, ?With ?300? and ?Immortals,? Mark Canton has produced some of the most successful films in Hollywood based on epic myths and legends.We are incredibly honored that he will now be working with us to take the story of ?The Sadhu? to the big screen.?



Graphic India was formed by comic book company, Liquid Comics and CA Media LP, the Asian investment arm of The Chernin Group, LLC (TCG).
