The Malayalam Film Industry has a reason to rejoice. Director Vinayan's Adbhutadweep has attracted top producers in Hollywood and they have approached the director for the film's remake rights. But really- when you think about it - how can a story based on an island full of short and tall people not intrigue and intrest Hollywood, especially with flicks like Pirates of the Caribbean rocking the Box Office.
It may be a story seen before in the form of Gulliver's Travels but nevertheless the fact that Hollywood is interested in it is big enough for Malayalam films - atleast for now. For all we know the rumour that he himself will direct it could be true. The Tamil version of the film titled Arpudatheevu and its Telugu version were released a while back and seem to be raking in the moolah too.
Possible reasons for this very interesting development could be Vinayan's penchant for using "extra" special effects. He wanted to use the special effects that were used for Hollywood blockbuster Jurassic Park in the film. Well, don't you think its time Indian films get their due? So what's next for Vinayan - the Oscars?
