Vikramaditya Motwane’s survival drama Trapped, starring Rajkummar Rao and released in 2017, will be remade in Vietnamese, according to a report in Screen International. The remake will be co-financed and co-produced by Ivanhoe Pictures, which has a co-production deal with Blumhouse Productions and Trapped producer Phantom Films, and Pacific Horizon Pictures.
In Trapped, company executive Shaurya (Rajkummar Rao) gets locked into an apartment in Mumbai with barely any food and water and a rat for company.
The contract between Ivanhoe and Pacific Horizon “calls for the development of a diverse slate of Vietnamese-language theatrical features”, Screen International reported.
Pacific Horizon Pictures partners Rick Ambros and Louie Nguyen said, “Vietnam is a booming theatrical market. We look forward to working with Ivanhoe Pictures to bring proven international content to Vietnam. We are also thrilled to bring US funding to exciting Vietnamese film projects.”
Among Ivanhoe’s upcoming projects are Crazy Rich Asians, the adaptation of Kevin Kwan’s bestselling novel of the same name, and Ghoul, the three-part Hindi-language series produced for Netflix along with Blumhouse Productions and Phantom Films.
