Some would argue that it was only a matter of time until Marvel’s mammoth success in Hollywood filtered across boarders, and sure enough, Stan Lee is taking his Chakra The Invincible character to Bollywood. Bet you didn’t see this coming.
Variety have broken the news that Graphic India and Stan Lee’s POW Entertainment have penned a deal with Phantom Films on the upcoming production. Speaking about the project, Lee said “I am really excited about launching ‘Chakra the Invincible’ as my first Bollywood superhero movie. Vikramaditya is an amazingly talented filmmaker who I have no doubt can make the Chakra film a massive hit in India and around the world. I only hope he remembers to include my cameo.”
That all-important cameo.
Vikramaditya Motwane will direct, as well as write the script alongside Lee and Graphic India’s Sharad Devarajan.
The story follows a boy called Raju, from the Indian city of Mumbai. He manages to get his hands on a suit that will harness the chakras in his body and give him his superpowers.
No release date for this one yet, but more on it as we get it. They better save the best dance scene for Stan.
