Hollywood stunt director to work on Narendra Modi biopic
Director Rupesh Paul, who is making a film titled NaMo, based on the life of Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi, is roping in international talent for the project.
We’ve been informed that Rupesh has brought Hollywood stunt director Jared S Eddo, who has worked on several big-budget Hollywood films, on board.
An insider reveals, "Jared has been signed on to choreograph the action sequences for the movie. He is among the top stunt directors in Hollywood with movies such as Godzilla (1998), Jurassic Park III (2001), The Matrix Reloaded (2003), Kill Bill Vol 2 (2004), 300 (2006) and The Expendables (2010), among others, to his name. He will be joining the team of the film in the third week of February."
Rupesh met Jared at a film event — the American Film Market 2013, in Los Angeles, USA. He was promoting his last release, Kamasutra 3D, at the fair.
When asked about his collaboration with Jared, Rupesh says, "Jared will be redesigning the contemporary Bollywood-style stunts, making them look more practical, thus breaking the clichéd action sequences. As NaMo is a political thriller, the action sequences form a major part, which needs to be laid down meticulously."
The director adds, "Jared will form a new set of stunts that will make our film visually rich and intense. It will give depth to the storytelling."
