“Players” to Feature Seaside City of Goa as Location
Studio18 is currently shooting “Players”, an official Hindi remake of Paramount’s The Italian Job
Directed by the brothers Abbas-Mastan, known for their stylish action thrillers such as 2008’s Race, “Players” was announced about a year ago.
As for how the film’s storyline will refer to the original, new CEO of Studio18, Vikram Malhotra, said, “The principal storyline and concept will remain integral to the original but suitable adaptations will be done keeping in mind the Indian audience sensibilities.”
Meanwhile Goa – long a favorite shooting destination for Indian films – is also serving as the location for Fox Star Studio India’s in-production Hindi release Dum Maaro Dum, which also stars Abhishek Bachchan and Bipasha Basu.
