Vidhu Finalizes Nicolas Cage for his Flick, Broken Horses

Finally, Vidhu Vinod Chopra has finalized the lead actor for his next flick, Broken Horses. Since the filmmaker is making an English movie, it’s obvious that lead actor would also be a Hollywood actor. But who is that! Vdhu has roped Nicolas Cage for his film.

The movie will go on the floor next year. A source says,

“Vidhu is currently in Los Angeles, working on for Broken Horses. Even in Mumbai, he was in touch with his Hollywood contacts for the cast and crew. Cage has been confirmed for one of the leading roles just a few days ago.”

Apparently, Vidu has also approached Mickey Rourke for an important role in the film Chopra is producing in association with Reliance Big Pictures. Apparently, the movie is inspired by his own flick, Parinda starring Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit. A source says,

“Broken Horses keeps the soul of Parinda intact. But it explores the same genre in a diverse setup.”

Though, Nitin Desai, who’s the production designer of the movie, has not confirmed the news but said,

“All I can say is that I’m working on Broken Horses. Vinod is the best person to talk about anything.”

If Vidhu is making an English version of his own flick, then why is he hiding?
