Aditya Bhattacharya will start shooting A Momentary Lapse Of Reason, an English-language remake of his 1988 cult classic Raakh, in Hyderabad in January.

Telugu star Rana Daggubati is heading the cast of the film, which is financed by Hyderabad-based Guru Films. Bhattacharya will shoot the film’s opening sequences in India before the production moves to Los Angeles. The film will also feature US actors who are currently being cast.

Bhattacharya is co-writing the remake with Madrid-based writer Enrico Vecchi. He will also produce along with Asif Noor and Sunitha Tati.

Bhattacharya’s BMW, starring Sarita Choudhury, Jaaved Jaaferi and Tannishtha Chatterjee, recently had its premiere in the India Gold competition at the Mumbai film festival.
