3rd\SE Quadrant The Approval Matrix
In an industry where plagiarism is rife, this piece of news comes as a surprise. Nikhil Advani and Mukesh Talreja of Orion Pictures are going the official way to remake the Hollywood film ‘Wedding Crashers’ in Hindi.
The duo apparently feels that the Warner Bros’ rom-com, revolving around romance and weddings, has all the ingredients and potential to be a Bollywood blockbuster.
Orion Pictures is presently in talks with Warner Bros. for the remake. Interestingly, the Bollywood production house won’t reportedly pay any money for the remake rights. Rather, Warner Bros. will benefit by being the presenter and the worldwide distributor of the Hindi remake.
Officials at both Orion Pictures and Warner Bros. have confirmed that they are in talks for the remake and some top Bollywood stars are under consideration for playing leading roles in the film. But the deal hasn’t been inked yet.
Starring Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn in lead roles, ‘Wedding Crashers’ tells the story of two longtime friends who frequently crash into weddings (as uninvited guests) to meet women and make their way into the heart of bridesmaid.
