MUMBAI: Big Screen Entertainment Group (BSEG) CEO Kimberley Kates has announced that plans are in motion to begin pre-production on the new William Shatner helmed comedy The Shiva Club aka Shiva Crashers. The story, based upon an original idea from Shatner, is a funny and touching look into the world of comedy, with a Shiva as the setting.
"Mr. Shatner has come up with a totally new and unique concept, and an extraordinarily strong script, written by Nat Maudlin," Kates said. "We are in talks with a virtual ‘who’s who’ of American comedy, from legendary comedians to today’s hottest comics."
Emmy and Golden Globe award winner Shatner, who stars as Denny Crane on the ABC hit Boston Legal, will likely step in front of the camera as well.
BSEG is co-producing the film with its Florida partner Five Star Entertainment, whose lifetime television series, The Balancing Act premieres later this month.
BSEG’s film The Mirror, starring Kelly LeBrock, Erin Cahill and Thaao Penghlis, played to a packed house at the Fantasporto Film festival in Porto, Portugal.
