Pasha will find ‘Soulmate’

Singh: Story mixes elements of 'Ghost,' 'Truly,' 'Sixth'

Kamran Pasha has come aboard to adapt Deepak Chopra’s novel “Soulmate” for Anant Singh’s Distant Horizon.

Shingle acquired rights to the novel from Chopra earlier this year.

Book follows the life of a doctor who loses his soulmate, leading to other crises in his life.

“Soulmate contains the love story of ‘Ghost,’ the despair of the grieving person who is devastated by having to continue life alone as depicted in ‘Truly Madly Deeply’ and the interaction with another dimension which was portrayed in ‘The Sixth Sense,’ ” Singh said.

Pasha’s spec script “Taj Mahal” recently sold to Warner Bros. Historical epic is based on the love story behind the building of the Taj Mahal.

Pasha, a former journalist for Knight Ridder, formally sold two spec scripts to Paramount for the TV series “7 Days” and then served as a writer on UPN’s version of “The Twilight Zone.”

Tyler Steele, Helena Spring and Brian Cox will oversee pic for Distant Horizon.

Company recently produced “I Capture the Castle” and pacted with director Rob Cohen to produce a live-action remake of the Japanese anime cult film “Kite.”

Pasha’s deal was negotiated by his reps at Genesis and the Firm.
