Internationally-renowned editor Vincent Tabaillon has joined the crew of Telugu hit Baahubali: The Beginning to oversee the film’s international cut.
Tabaillon’s credits include The Incredible Hulk, Clash Of The Titans and Now You See Me. He will edit the international version of Baahubali, which will be screened at international film festivals and shown to sales agents and distributors ahead of a non-Indian diaspora global release.
Born in France, Tabaillon started his career editing French films, notably for Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp. He regularly collaborated with French director Louis Leterrier on films such as Transporter 2 and The Incredible Hulk, followed by Now You See Me.
His other prominent credits include Taken 2 for Fox, The Prodigies for Warner Bros and The Legend Of Hercules for Summit Entertainment.
Directed by S. S. Rajamouli, Telugu-language epic Baahubali had a record-breaking opening last weekend, grossing $20m in India and another $5m in Indian diaspora venues. The film was produced by Shobu Yarlagadda and Prasad Devineni of Arka Mediaworks and stars Prabhas, Rana Daggubati and Anushka Shetty.
The international cut is expected to be ready for delivery by the end of August.
