When Dreamworks separated from Paramount, most of its new funding came from the India based Reliance Entertainment. Now it seems Steven Spielberg is hoping to strengthen the connection to the subcontinent, with a movie set in the disputed Kashmir border region between India and Pakistan.
During a trip to India, Spielberg told the Times Of India (via THR) that, “We have finalized a script for a movie. Part of it will take place on the India-Pakistan border in Kashmir. But we’re still trying to figure out the casting, locations and who’s going to direct it.” The film will be co-produced by Dreamworks and Reliance.
Unfortunately there’s no more info on the movie than that.
Spielberg was apparently in India to celebrate the success of Lincoln with Anil Ambani, the billionaire chairman of Reliance Group. The movie’s box office is certainly good news, as Reliance has apparently been slightly worried about its investment, after a few Dreamworks projects failed financially.
