Shahrukh Khan has roped in a Hollywood writer to script his upcoming superhero film, to be directed by Anubhav Sinha, who has previously directed movies like Tum Bin, Dus and Cash.
SRK has signed on David Benullo, who has previously scripted Hollywood films like ‘Cupid and Shadow Man’ and ‘Hallowed Ground’.
Why has SRK gone Hollywood? Does Bollywood lack quality writers? Well according to a source close to SRK’s Red Chillies Entertainment, Ra 1 isn’t a typical Bollywood masala entertainer and the film needs to be treated differently. Loads of special effects will be used, along with lots of action sequences. SRK wanted someone who could do justice to their initial idea, hence Hollywood writer David Benullo was approached. The news was confirmed by director Anubhav Sinha.
Shooting for RA 1 will begin soon after Karan Johar wraps up My Name Is Khan, which is about 80% complete.
The superhero film will release next year.
