Irrfan Khan to star in another major Hollywood film, Marc Turtletaub’s Puzzle
Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan is all set to add another Hollywood project in his bag.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 50-year-old actor will star in Marc Turtletaub’s Puzzle, alongside Kelly Macdonald and David Denman.
Oren Moverman and Annie Baker have written the script, which is an adaptation of the 2010 Argentine film Rompecabezas. The original was directed by Natalia Smirnoff and was nominated for the Golden Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival.
The story focuses on a forty-something suburban mother whose world is consumed with caring for the men in her family. When she discovers she has a gift for assembling puzzles, her world begins to open and her entire family is forced to adjust and grow as well.
“I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to work with this exceptional screenplay and talented cast. It is rare to find such a distinctive story of a woman finding her true self in mid-life,” shared Turtletaub.
“Oren and Annie have crafted a charming tale that explores the surprising emotional life of real adult characters. We think this story will resonate with an audience hungry for authentic original drama,” noted a statement from the producers.
Rounding out the cast is Bubba Weiler (The Good Fight, The Ranger), Austin Abrams (Paper Towns) and Liv Hewson (Santa Clarita Diet, Top of the Lake).
This is Irrfan Khan’s fourth major Hollywood project. His past credits include Inferno with Tom Hanks, Jurassic World with Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard and Ang Lee’s Life of Pi.
The shooting of the movie will start later this month in New York.
