Sanju in ‘Bourne Identity’ remake?

The grapevine is abuzz with the speculation that Sanjay Gupta is planning his next project, a remake of the Matt Damon starrer THE BOURNE IDENTITY. With best friend cum partner Sanjay Dutt heading the cast. That’s absolute hogwash, Gupta clarifies in his characteristic style, I am not remaking or rehashing THE BOURNE IDENTITY. Someone else is doing it instead [name withheld]. Incidentally, Bollywood film-makers had attempted THE BOURNE IDENTITY twice in the past. So what is Gupta planning next, now that MUSAFIR is ready for release? I am planning a serious epic saga. It has a huge cast, four lead men to be precise – two from the elder generation, two from the new generation. The new film will be much more intense than KAANTE and MUSAFIR, the stylish film-maker divulges. Please elaborate. I am planning a never-before combination of actors for this film. Like KAANTE had an extremely unusual cast. Even MUSAFIR is different. I have confirmed two actors as of today, he states, With this film, I would be completing my trilogy of crime movies I have decided to take a break after its release. Journalist Suresh Nair [‘Bombay Times’] and Sujoy Ghosh [JHANKAAR BEATS] are co-writing the script with him, Gupta states. The film will be launched in Dashehra. PS: We aren’t revealing the star cast, but here’re the clues. Do the guesswork yourself The senior actor, who is Gupta’s close friend, will head the cast [no prizes for guessing!], while the second lead man is the young model turned actor who’s created quite a dhoom these days. As for the third hero, the choice is between the senior actor [brother of a topnotch producer] and this middle-aged supremely talented actor [son of an action director]. Again, for the fourth hero, the choice is between the beau of the beauty queen and the legendary super-star’s son.
