Virgin Produced Buys Indian Rights to ‘Insurgent’

Virgin Produced India has acquired the Indian rights to “The Divergent Series: Insurgent” from Lionsgate Films International in association with Kinesis Films.

The film is being released Friday in 3D and Imax in India as part of the day-and-date worldwide opening of the Shailene Woodley action sequel. It will be the first release for Virgin Produced India, a partnership between Richard Branson’s Virgin Produced, Cinema Capital Venture Fund and Tantrik Group.

“As one of the world’s most recognized and respected brands with deep roots in entertainment, we felt it important to introduce Virgin Produced and enter the Indian market with the right film,” said Virgin Produced CEO Jason Felts.

Virgin Produced India was launched in late 2013 to develop, produce and distribute Bollywood films along with remaking Hollywood content for Indian audiences.
