Fortissimo Films has inked its first-ever deal for a Hindi-language feature with Indian helmer Dev Benegal’s “Road, Movie.”
Pic is being financed by the Indian Film Co. in association with Studio 18, with Fortissimo handling international sales outside of India.
Susan B. Landau and Ross Katz are producing the project, which stars Abhay Deol, Tannishtha Chatterjee and Satish Kaushik.
“Road, Movie” is a picaresque story about a young man driving an antique Chevy with two old film projectors in the back set against the epic desert backdrop of Gujarat and Rajasthan in India.
Fortissimo has been tracking Benegal’s project for two years.
