Hollywood Director To Produce Remake Of Bollywood Actioner ‘Kill’

LOS ANGELES, CA (IANS) – The soon-to-be-released Bollywood movie ‘Kill’ is getting a Hollywood remake. Hollywood Director Chad Stahelski, director of the Keanu Reeves-starrer ‘John Wick’, and his production company, 87Eleven Entertainment, are set to produce the remake.

The announcement came even before the release of the original Hindi-language ‘Kill’, directed by Nikhil Nagesh Bhat.

The theatrical rollout of the film marks one of the first times a mainstream Hindi-language film has partnered with a Hollywood studio for a theatrical release in North America and the UK.

In the film, a commando named Amrit (Lakshya) finds out his star-crossed lover Tulika (Tanya Maniktala) is engaged against her will. He boards a New Delhi-bound train to derail the arranged marriage and reunite with his true love. However, his journey takes a turn when a gang of knife-wielding thieves begins to terrorize innocent passengers on the train, prompting Amrit to take them on himself and save those around him.

Producers Karan Johar, Apoorva Mehta for Dharma Productions, and Guneet Monga Kapoor and Achin Jain said in a joint statement: “When we made ‘Kill’ with Nikhil Nagesh Bhat, we dreamed of global love, and seeing North American theatres chant ‘Kill! Kill! Kill!’ was like seeing that vision come alive. This announcement coming before the original film’s release is unprecedented and a big win for Indian cinema. We are truly honored.”

Hollywood Director Chad Stahelski said in a statement: “‘Kill’ is one of the most vivid, wild, and creative action movies I’ve seen recently. Nikhil delivers relentless action sequences that need to be seen by as wide an audience as possible. It’s exciting to be developing an English-language version — we have big shoes to fill and I’m looking forward to working with Nikhil, Karan, Apoorva, Guneet, and Achin to achieve that.”
