Producer Mubina Rattonsey has launched Zero Gravity as a Los Angeles-based operation for film development, production and post-production, Variety has learned exclusively.
The first two film projects from Zero Gravity will be “Wraith” and “Gamma Man,” both written by Armaan Chopra.
“Wraith” is inspired by the true story of a possessed child. Principal photography will commence in October. “Gamma Man” is a superhero film about a teenager who acquires supernatural powers when he is exposed to a meteor shower.
Rattonsey’s credits include “Before the Rains,” “Terrorist,” “Navarasa,” “Tahaan – A Boy With a Grenade,” “Kaminey” and “Prarambha” — a short film for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Zero Gravity plans to produce four to six projects a year at varying budget levels — all aimed at being wide releases for the global audience.
“From a business perspective, I see more opportunity in Hollywood today than ever before, and I have been evaluating the landscape for a number of years, contemplating the right time to branch out,” Rattonsey said. “I am excited to begin working creatively and collaboratively with new partners in Hollywood to build a diverse portfolio of projects with worldwide appeal.”
