Vidhu Ropes Barrie Osborne as Producer in Broken Horses

After giving box-office hit, 3 Idiots, Vidhu Vinod Chopra is quite busy with his first English film, Broken Horses. It seems that, the director’s first English will soon go on floors. A huge set-up has been created in a desert town bordering Mexico and the US. The film will have western cast and crew.

Vidhu Vinod Chopra is quite ambitious about the project as the director has managed to rope Hollywood Baggie, Barrie Osborne as the executive producer. Barrie has been associated with some of the Hollywood projects like The Matrix, Octopussy, Face/Off and Lord Of The Rings Trilogy. Another executive producer of the film is Fred Roos, who worked on Lost In Translation and The Godfather Parts 2 and 3. Fred and Barrie have worked together on Apocalypse Now as well. Vinod says,

“Barrie helps us get the scale of the film right. As for Fred, I met him a few years ago as a student on the sets of The Godfather. He was an inspiration then and is an inspiration even now.”

A grand set is being erected in Mexico where shooting will begin from September.
