‘Bombay Dreams’ to the bigscreen

Andrew Lloyd Weber tuner set to shoot in India

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical “Bombay Dreams” is set to hit the bigscreen with “Monsoon Wedding” scribe Sabrina Dhawan confirmed to pen the adaptation.

Pic, which will begin shooting in India in 2011, is produced by shingle Marquee Picture, a company specifically set up to bring Broadway and London West End musicals to the bigscreen.

Pic will be produced in association with the Really Useful Group, Lloyd Webber’s U.K.-based entertainment company.

Marquee is headed up by former Universal exec Jeff Segal, former ICM packaging agent and producer Steve Waterman, Arclight Films president Gary Hamilton and Azure Media Group chairman Steve Wilkenson.

Jack Crosby, chairman of Sundance Film Institute, will chair Marquee Pictures.

The Bollywood-themed stage tuner, with A.R. Rahman’s music, had a two-year run in London and won two Tonys and four Drama Desk awards.

Cast has yet to be determined.

Arclight Films Intl. will handle international sales of the pic.
