Hollywood star Brendon Fraser who is widely known for his role in the blockbuster franchise ‘The Mummy’ is now going to share the screen space with Hindi film star Abhay Deol in a bilingual thriller called ‘The Field’. Ronit Roy and veteran actor Prem Chopra will also be joining the star cast of the film that is suppose to release in 2018. Brendon would be portraying an ex-pat gun runner who was born in USA but was always brought up in India. Film’s plot has a very interesting family dynamic to it.
It is about a mafia family who have lost the sanity in heads since the patriarch has died and everyone is eyeing for the big seat over each other’s life. This is a common plot line for many mafia films but to see these very different energies collide in one film should be something to look forward to. It is the feature directorial debut of Rohit Batra who has urged the audience to see this film as an international project despite of the fact that most of it was shot in India as Rohit wanted to capture the diverse visually imagery this land has to offer on celluloid.
To shoot Indian urban or landscape would be a dream for any cinematographer as it does offer such wide variety of colors that could set the tone and rhythm for each and every nuance in the film. Foreign lands, especially Europe seems very calm but a little uninteresting as far as the color palette is concerned in accordance to the camera angle. In India one can find different variants wherever the camera is pointed at any point of time. Brendon is known for his work in the Hollywood film industry but this will be his first collaboration with Hindi cinema in his entire career.
