Oscar winner A. R. Rahman (SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE) will write the score of STREET DANCING with Golden Globe winner English musician David A. Stewart (EURYTHMICS), according to reports.
Directed by Bille Woodruff (BEAUTY SHOP) and scripted by David B. Harris (AMERICAN DREAMS), this pop-cross-cultural movie around cutting-edge dance competitions of New York and Singapore will star Cindy Gomez (TRIBULATION FORCE). With funding from Singapore and Abu Dhabi, Ashok Amritraj (RAISING HELEN) will produce.
Aimed at global audiences, this music-heavy movie will bring East and West closer through music-culture-lifestyle, reports suggest.
Rahman, who has reportedly recorded sales of over 300 million, was called "Mozart of Madras'' by Time magazine. Rahman sees music "as a way to connect to spirituality and embrace it" and for "creating harmony in troubled times".
