Ratner re-edits Reliance’s ‘Kites’

Director creates international friendly version

LONDON — Brett Ratner is going East. The helmer is reediting the English-language version of Indian media conglom Reliance Big Pictures’ $30 million “Kites” to help it find U.S. distribution.

Reliance is readying two versions, English and Hindi, which will be released simultaneously in international markets.

In India, the film, helmed by Anurag Basu and starring Hrithik Roshan and Barbara Mori, will only be released in Hindi.

With the Hindi version already complete, producers are hoping that Ratner’s edit will tailor the tale of love and betrayal to international auds and help the pic find international distributors.

Ratner’s involvement with “Kites” continues his relationship with Reliance with whom he inked a development pact in February.

Reliance subsequently paid mid-six figures for the rights to Rob Liefeld’s graphic novel “Youngblood” for Ratner to direct.
