Fox Searchlight’s Darjeeling Limited to release 25 April

Mumbai: Fox Searchlight Pictures and Collage’s latest film The Darjeeling Limited will release in Mumbai on 25 April.
The film is being distributed in Mumbai by Warner Bros. The Darjeeling Limited is directed by Wes Anderson and revolves around three American brothers who have not spoken to each other in a year. The movie stars Irrfan Khan, Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody and Jason Schwartzman.
The Darjeeling Limited’s screenplay is by Anderson, Roman Coppola and Jason Schwartzman. Joining Wilson, Schwartzman and Brody in the cast are Anjelica Huston, Amara Karan, Wally Wolodarsky, Camilla Rutherford and Irrfan Khan. The film is produced by Wes Anderson, Scott Rudin, Roman Coppola and Lydia Dean Pilcher and executive produced by Steven Rales.
It is the story of a reunion between three estranged brothers in perhaps the most intriguing locale yet–onboard a train headed across the deserts of Rajasthan, speeding the shell-shocked brothers through vast foreign terrains both physical and emotional.
"I’d always wanted to make a movie on a train because I like the idea of a moving location. It goes forward as the story goes forward. I already set a movie on a boat," Anderson says.
"I decided I would like to make a movie in India, I decided I would like to make a movie on a train and I thought I’d like to make a movie about three brothers. Then I asked my friends Jason Schwartzman and Roman Coppola to join me in writing the movie and we all went to India together," he adds.
Speaking about India, Anderson says, "It’s really not like any place else. It’s a place where so many aspects of daily life are so radically different from our own, and that really affected the screenplay. Even though 90 per cent of the story is about Francis, Peter and Jack negotiating, arguing and trying to understand one another, we felt it was very important to have those conversations take place on train tracks truly moving through this ancient country."
Adds Coppola, "I think we all hope that the vibrant, chaotic spirit we found in India, and that the Whitman brothers find in India, will really come across in the movie."
