Steven Spielberg Announces a Film set alongside India, Pakistan Border

By FNN | March 12, 2013, 9:42pm IST
Summary: The director said the project will be produced by DreamWorks and India's Reliance Entertainment and that the partners are now discussing casting and seeking a director.

Steven Spielberg during his maiden trip to India announced that he plans to produce a film set along the border between India and Pakistan, in the politically troubled Kashmir region.

"We have finalized a script for a movie," he said. "Part of it will take place on the India-Pakistan border in Kashmir. But we're still trying to figure out the casting, locations and who's going to direct it."

The new Spielberg-produced India project will be the celebrated filmmaker’s first foray in the country in nearly three decades. He last shot in India in 1983 for Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. He also filmed portions of Close Encounters of the Third Kind in India in the mid 1970s. He scouted many places including banaras, delhi and jaipur for a location for the Indiana Jones movie. However, he then settled for a shoot in neighboring Sri Lanka.
