Turning to be a truly Indian global studio, Vistaar Entertainment helmed by Sheetal Talwar, following backing films such as ‘The Eichmann Show’ starring Martin Freeman, ‘The Joneses’ starring Demi Moore and David Duchovny, will produce ‘Romans’ starring award winning actor Orlando Bloom (The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Hobbit) alongside a stellar cast including; Anne Reid (Coronation Street, Hot Fuzz, The Mother); Alex Ferns (EastEnders, Legend) and Rory Nolan (The Dark Knight Rises, Sherlock Holmes and the Baker Street Irregulars).
Directed by The Shamassian Brothers (The Pyramid Texts) with screenplay by BAFTA award winning writer Geoff Thompson, Romans is being produced by Sheetal Vinod Talwar’s Vistaar along with James Harris and Mark Lane of The Tea Shop & Film Company and Jasper Graham of Dreamscape Films.
Set in present day London, Romans is based on true life events and follows the story of a middle aged man, ‘Malky’ played by Orlando Bloom.
Speaking about the film Sheetal Vinod Talwar, Managing Director Vistaar said, “Romans is an incredible script. The dialogue is brilliant and believable; the reversals and surprises are well placed and powerful. Orlando was the perfect choice for ‘Malky’ and will take audiences on a raw and harrowing voyage through the inner human psyche. With the Shamassian Brothers at the helm, this is a story worth telling.”
“I am thrilled to be working with Mr Talwar and such a talented team. This project has a powerful message that can’t be ignored and we hope to give a fresh perspective on a sensitive, topical issue.” added Jasper Graham, producer, Dreamscape Films.
