Priyan’s Rs 100 cr deal
Posted January 15, 2010on:
With a string of successes in his kitty, Priyadarshan has certainly earned his spurs. And now comes news that Woodpecker Holding Inc, a US based entertainment fund, has placed a Rs 100 crore bet on this consistent winner.
Priyan’s decade old production house Four Frames has inked a deal worth $20 million that will require them to produce two Hindi feature films for the American firm. Confirming the news Priyadarshan said, “Woodpecker will be forwarding the entire investments for the productions which Four Frames will produce on their behalf.” Both the films will be directed by Priyadarshan himself.
The first of the two productions goes on the floors in April 2010 with a start-to-finish 60-day schedule in Lucknow and abroad. The second will be another start-to-finish venture between September and December 2010. Priyadarshan will start with the first Four Frames-Woodpecker collaboration, based on a super hit Tamil film featuring four friends. But definitely no idiots here.
