PNC has finalized the 3D characters of EK KHILADI EK HASSENA to be the first project to be animated. Aptly called EKEK 2.0 ? it would be all the nuances of old characters in to a new script. This is the first time a Bollywood actor is getting immortalized into a 3D animation character.
PNC had signed a five-film animation deal with Motion Pixel Corporation, Florida. The exclusive deal between the two companies includes five 3D animated full-length Bollywood feature films with Indian and international actors, songs, dances, item numbers and everything that Bollywood is special for. The first of these five films is currently in production and is a version 2.0 of one of PNC's most successful live action films.
The deal will see PNC handle the creative aspects of these animated films from the development of scripts, movie soundtracks, including contracting top Bollywood and international stars to do voice-overs for the animated characters.
EKEH 2.0 is slated to be ready for release in the first half of 2008.
