Hollywood is officially out of ideas.
So feels Paul Schrader, the writer-director best known for screenplays like Taxi Driver and Raging Bull. Which is why he's now making a Bollywood movie.
Quoted in The Hollywood Reporter as saying the US film market has become 'barren,' Schrader confirms that he will make a Bollywood actioner called Extreme City -- and that it will not be a masala movie.
Schrader is set to write and direct the film, produced by Anubhav Sinha (of Cash and Dus fame). The two are evidently in talks with a number of Bollywood stars.
And yes, there will be songs.
