Looop Lapeta, which is the Hindi adaptation of German film Run Lola Run, will have Taapsee Pannu alongside Tahir Raj Bhasin in lead roles.
To be directed by Aakash Bhatia, the film will be bankrolled by Ellipses Entertainment. Announcing the new, Taapsee writes:
“Right, so here’s yet another announcement from my stable. I’m on a roll.
Or shall I say in a loop? Stoked to announce Sony Picture India and Ellipsis Entertainment’s crazy thriller-comedy, “LOOOP LAPETA”, an adaptation of the cult classic “Run Lola Run.”
Looking forward to the roller-coaster with my director Aakash Bhatia, my co-star, Tahir Raj Bhasin and the amazing folks at Ellipsis Entertainment (Tanuj, Atul) and Sony! Mark your calendar for 29th Jan, 2021!”
Talking about her new project, Taapsee tells a leading paper that she “can’t wait” to start shooting the film.
She said: “Savi is a quirky, insane addition to my repertoire. I love how an iconic film like Run Lola Run has been adapted for the Indian milieu without losing its edge.
More excitingly, it’s been laced with amazingly cheeky straight-faced humour. It’s cool in the truest sense of the word and as bold thematically as it is stylistically. I can’t wait to get started.”
Run Lola Run is a crime thriller directed by Tom Tykwer. Released in 1998, the film received critical acclaim for its cinematography, editing and soundtracks.
The movie revolves around the story of Lola (Franka Potente), who desperately tries to find 100,000 Deutsche marks (German currency) to save her boyfriend Manni’s (Moritz Bleibtreu) life.
It tells the same story of Lola and Manni in three alternate and parallel timelines.
The film received several accolades, including the BAFTA Award for the Best Film Not in the English Language.
It was also Germany’s entry for the Oscars in the Best Foreign Language category in 1999.
The movie is scheduled to release in cinemas next year in January. Taapsee currently is busy promoting her next venture Thappad, which is directed by Anubhav Sinha.
