In an unprecedented move Hollywood and Bollywood will collaborate in the first ever Hollywood 'remix' of a Bollywood film. Renowned Hollywood action director Brett Ratner (RUSH HOUR series, X-MEN: THE LAST STAND), in association with Reliance BIG Pictures, presents KITES: THE REMIX, an electrifying, sexy, high octane action-adventure starring Indian superstar Hrithik Roshan (JODHAA AKBAR, KOI...MIL GAYA) and Barbara Mori (LA MUJER DE MI HERMANO, VIOLANCHELO).
Following hot on the heels of the release of Anurag Basu's KITES, KITES: THE REMIX is an exciting new approach to filmmaking - the same film, played to a different rhythm and reworked with a younger, hipper, faster edge for action audiences.
Produced on an epic scale by Rakesh Roshan ((KAHO NAA...PYAAR HAI, KOI...MIL GAYA) and lavishly shot entirely on location in the bright lights of Las Vegas, Sante Fe and Los Angeles KITES: THE REMIX follows the eventful and unpredictable story of 'J' (Hrithik Roshan) and Linda (Barbara Mori), a couple on the run, in love and quickly running out of time.
From the director
Brett Ratner explains "As a huge fan of Bollywood and its filmmakers, I was delighted when Rakesh and Anurag invited me to create a westernised version of their fabulously conceived film. The opportunity to widen the audience profile for KITES was compelling and I have thoroughly enjoyed the collaboration."
A Reliance BIG Pictures production, Brett Ratner presents KITES: THE REMIX. Produced by Rakesh Roshan and directed by Anurag Basu. Edited by Mark Helfich (the RUSH HOUR series, X-MEN: THE LAST STAND) with an additional background score from Graeme Revell (SIN CITY, GRINDHOUSE, PINEAPPLE EXPRESS).
