Hollywood and Stephen Chow To Remake Aamir Khan’s 3 Idiots
After its blockbuster success in India, Aamir Khan starrer 3 Idiots is all set to get a Hollywood remake.
“We are in talks with 3 studios in Hollywood and one company in Italy for the remake of 3 Idiots,” Vinod Chopra told PTI on the sidelines of the ongoing International film festival of India (IFFI).
And that’s not it. The film, which released in India in December 2009, is all set to explore other markets. It is releasing in Mainland China with a whopping 900 prints next week.
“Its a first for any Hindi film to release with so many prints in China. It is also being adapted into a stage musical in Taiwan. The film has already made 2-3 million dollars in Hong Kong,” said Chopra.
The film is also getting a Chinese remake.
“The director of Kung Fu Hustle Stephen Chow is also remaking it in Chinese. My films are made with universal values so they connect with audience all over the world. I am hoping my next Ferrari Ki Sawari also tastes the same success.”
Ferrari… starring Sharman Joshi is a film about a father-son relationship and will release in April next year.
