Big B not in Ridley Scott’s Film

Posted on July 7th, 2007 in Movies, News

It has been reported that Amitabh Bachchan was approached by Ridley Scott who asked him to appear in his film Body of Lies. Unfortunately, now it seems Big B will be forced to pass the project.

Bachchan says, “I had received an e-mail from Ridley Scott. I asked for the script and was informed that they are working on it at the moment. They want to shoot the film in September. I have already committed those dates to some other producer, so it’s unlikely that I will do the film.”

The film is a thriller with Leonardo Dicaprio and Russell Crowe already signed on to play 2 of the leads. DiCaprio teams up with Crowe’s character, a CIA agent to trap an Al Queda leader. And Bachchan was to play a Jordanian character. Earlier when first talking about the film, Bachchan unbelievably said “Let’s be realistic … who will notice me when DiCaprio and Crowe are in the same film?”

Interestingly, Scott first met Bachchan at a Film Festival in Morocco where he offered him a role in Kingdom of Heaven. Unfortunately Bachchan was not able to sign on for that film either.

We would have loved to see these 3 fine actors in one film together and are sure that Big B would definitely get noticed, most likely with rave reviews!
