Hey Life: why? After millions of lunch room dream movie arguments in the ’80s; after spiders launched webs inside their Planet Hollywoods, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone are finally teaming up on screen! It’s inglorious, bastards. The Times Online reports that they’ll co-star in the highest profile Bollywood flick to date, Incredible Love, the story of an Indian stuntman who can’t find true romance in the States (aw). C’mon, just have a duel with Nerf rockets instead.
The film is headlined by Indian stars, Ashkay Kumar (Singh is Kinng) and Kareena Kapoor (Bewaffa) and will film at Universal Studios, a first for the flashy Indian cinema. Apparently, Stallone will have a larger part than Arnold, and it wasn’t clarified whether they’d be playing their real life selves. Expect it to be cheeky, cheeky like that photo above.
“Sajid Nadiadwala, the producer, said his success in landing Stallone and Schwarzenegger reflected the growing power of the Indian film market and Bollywood’s increasing cooperation with Hollywood studios that are keen to cut costs.”
Indeed. Earlier this month, Steven Spielberg made a landmark deal worth $500 million plus with Indian entertainment company Reliance ADA. For more on that situation, click to see the /Film post Dreamworks For Dummies. If all of this Bollywood news makes you want get your party on, let us suggest Bombay the Hard Way and the newly released King Kahn and the Shrines (seriously amazing with Bollywood-inspired cover art) as the soundtrack.
In other news: The Love Guru was a massive flop this weekend. Cool.
Discuss: Incredible Meh? Wouldn’t it be grand if Die Hard 5 went Bollywood and was rated PG?
