Anurag Kashyap to Remake France’s ‘La Famille Belier’ in India

Reliance Entertainment and Phantom Films have set up a deal to remake 2015 French drama “La Famille Belier” in multiple Indian languages.

The hit film depicts a family where the speech-impaired parents are dependent on a daughter who wants to leave home and go on tour as a singer. It was directed by Eric Lartigau from a script by Victoria Bedos, Stanislas Carre de Malberg, Eric Lartigau and Thomas Bidegain.

Phantom is a collective of independent film-makers that includes Anurag Kashyap (“That Girl in Yellow Boots”,) Vikas Bahl (director of ‘’Queen,” and producer of Kashyap’s “Bombay Velvet”,) Vikramaditya Motwane and Madhu Mantena.

“With appropriate changes in sensibilities and the tone; it’ll become a very interesting story for our audiences,” said Kashyap.

“At heart, ‘La Famille Belier’ is a story about love and compassion for one’s family. It is a beautiful story that will resonate with Indian sensibilities and culture, and we want to develop it in multiple languages, so that we reach out to as big an audience as possible,” said Bahl.

The original French film was produced by Jerico and Mars Films along and sold internationally by SND Films.

Reliance Entertainment is the film and TV arm of Anil Ambani’s infrastructure to telecoms conglomerate Reliance ADA Group. It is a minority investor in Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Partners and is the majority owner of Los Angeles-based sales and finance agency IM Global. Reliance Entertainment will distribute the Indian versions of “La Famille Belier” globally.

Reliance Entertainment and Phantom last year announced plans to produce a slate of four to six films per year.
