We’ve been suggesting for years that Brett Ratner get over himself and go fly a kite. Which as you may know is an expression for getting lost, taking a long walk off a short pier, or just generally ceasing to exist. Well, now Ratner is going to fly a kite, its just not the right kind.
According to THR, the Rush Hour director has been tasked with re-editing an English-language version of Kites, from Indian director Anurag Basu. The film is set to be released internationally by Reliance BIG Pictures, who wants to have one version in Hindi to play in India and one version in English to play elsewhere. The film stars Hrithick Roshan and Barbara Mori and tells the story of a mortally wounded man who is left for dead in the heat of the desert sun. This is J. Once a street smart, carefree young guy. Now, a wanted man. As death looms, the only thing that keeps him alive is the quest to find the love of his life, Natasha. A woman betrothed to another man, but surely destined for J. A woman who comes into his life like a bolt of lightning and changes it forever.
The film was shot in Las Vegas, Mumbai, New Mexico and Los Angeles.
