The production house is currently in discussions with two leading Indian actors to reprise the roles played by Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn. The director is also yet to be confirmed.
Orion Pictures is currently shooting Warner Bros' first Hindi film Chandni Chowk To China in association with Ramesh Sippy Entertainment.
Mukesh Talreja of Orion Pictures said: 'I have seen Wedding Crashers and I think it would certainly lend itself to a Bollywood remake. I am very happy we will be doing this in the right way, in association with Warner Brothers.'
On the decision to remake Wedding Crashers, Blaise Fernandes of Warner Brothers India, said: 'We are talking to Orion Pictures on the possibility of remaking Wedding Crashers in India. Orion has shown keen interest and has lined up some of the best talent for this project.'
The preparation of an official remake of a US studio film is an encouraging step for the Hindi film industry, which is renowned for producing unofficial remakes. It's understood that Warner Bros India is planning to issue a notice threatening legal action against any other party 'planning to remake this film in concept or as a remake'.
Among Orion's other projects are an animation feature tentatively titled Ab Dilli Door Nahi, live-action feature Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai! and three films directed by Nikhil Advani, Vikramaditya Motwane and Shivam Nair respectively.
