Taxi Driver scribe Paul Schrader is packing his bags and heading to Bollywood. The acclaimed screenwriter is off to Mumbai, India to write and direct the action movie Extreme City for Bollywood.
Schrader feels that the American film market has become barren of ideas, finances, audiences, and distribution and has said he will enjoy exploring the creative freedom that is offered by the Indian marketplace's equivalent of Hollywood. Extreme City will feature an American who travels to India in order to help resolve a kidnapping case and is eventually involved in a gangster plot. The dialogue will be spoken in both English and Hindi and may include some musical numbers.
