Philip Kim and Elisabeth Costa de Beauregard’s Storyboard Media have been hustling since the last AFM repping world sales for award-winning filmmaker Rohit Karn Batra’s crime thriller, Line of Descent. Its presence continued since then at the EFM in Berlin where producer Guy J. Louthan scored greenlights for projects under his Palanquin banner – Mata Hari and Fargo-esque crime thriller, Call Center.
For now, we have an official first look at what will entail for Batra’s feature directorial debut, formerly titled The Field, now screening in Berlin during the market period. Casting a raft of Indian talent with DC Universe’s Doom Patrol series headliner Brendan Fraser back in the spotlight, Batra pens the script that sees Fraser as a manipulative arms dealer playing all sides of a brewing war fueled by three Indian mafia brothers following the death of their patriarch, and an undercover cop investigating their activities and inner-turmoil.
Featured stars Abhay Deol, Ronit Roy and Neeraj Kabi, are joined by Fraser and co-star Max Beesley from a script penned by Batra who produces with Louthan and Brillstein Entertainment Partners’ Jai Khanna.
