After bringing American TV shows 24, Modern Family and Prison Break to India, Anil Kapoor will star in and produce a remake of Bruce Willis-Morgan Freeman starrer action comedy Red.
Daughter Sonam Kapoor took to her Twitter handle to post the teaser poster of the movie and wrote alongside, “My dad’s current obsession! #RED @AnilKapoor First look Out now!! ! What a cool poster!”
For the unversed, the Anil Kapoor’s AKFC production banner is partnering with American studio Lionsgate’s first Indian film.
Inspired by the limited comic book series of the same name, the Hollywood film also starred John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Karl Urban and Marie-Louise Parker.
However, the cast of the Bollywood version is still being finalised.
Earlier, the Dil Dhadakne Do actor posted the intriguing teaser poster on Twitter and wrote, “And here it is! We bring you the multi-starrer action-comedy phenomenon #RED! Let the adventure begin! @Lionsgate”
Like its Hollywood poster, this Hindi version too has a reddish tint and grungy background, but we see silhouettes of the stars instead of the stars themselves.
In a recent statement, the 59-year-old actor mentioned, “After successfully adapting 24 Season 1 and Season 2, we are looking forward to remaking Red for the Indian audience. This successful movie that boasts of a huge multi-starrer cast is perfect for India as it has all the elements our audience loves: Action, drama and comedy mounted on a huge canvas.”
