The Hollywood producers behind THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON are threatening legal action against Bollywood filmmakers over their plans to remake Brad Pitt's Oscar-winning movie.
Pitt starred alongside Australian actress Cate Blanchett in last year's (08) film, about a man who ages backwards.
The Times of India reported last month (Mar09) that Bollywood actors Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai were set to star in similar film called Action Replay.
Producers at Warner Brothers and Paramount placed advertisements in the paper and local trade publications on Monday (06Apr09), warning Bollywood film producers not to proceed with a planned Hindi remake.
A New Delhi law firm representing Warner Brothers will pursue legal action against any film made either in English or Hindi or other language, having a similar script, screenplay or story line or character sketches or interplay of characters or sequence of events to the original movie, reports Agence France-Presse.
