vishal bhardwaj's next: julia?

[Muchos gracias to LL for making sure I didn't miss the article]

Buried deep in lucky Raja Sen's coverage of a day of shooting on Blood Brothers is more information about Vishal's next film. The film's called Julia and it looks like Omkara DP Tassaduq Hussain is slated to return for this "out and out entertainer, [...] the kind of film people don't expect from Vishal Bhardwaj"; Vishal's collaborating with Matthew Robbins, whose screenwriting credits include The Sugarland Express, Close Encounters Of The Third Kind and Mimic [a few notes about that hereabouts]. Mimic was directed by Guillermo del Toro, thus giving us an indirect link to Guillermo Navarro.

This doesn't quite look like a period drama set in the days of World War II on the Burma-Japan border (more about that came earlier), but any news is always welcome.

The Rediff Special is highly recommended; lots of nuggets about Navarro's other collaborations (del Toro, Tarantino, Rodriguez), interesting photographs on each slide and yes, the AIDS short also features Pawan Malhotra and Pankaj Kapur.
