While promoting his new release BUNRAKU, Josh Hartnett told Tribute.ca in a video interview that he will be heading soon to India to shoot acclaimed French director Roland Joffe next project SINGULARITY. Hartnett will star as British captain James Stewart. Paul Breuls’ Belgian production, sales and financing entity Corsan is producing.
SINGULARITY is an 33 millions epic story set across two time periods and continents. Plot involves a British officer in colonial India; the Indian woman he falls in love with; an American marine biologist; and his lover, a researcher who is trapped in a wrecked British merchant ship.
Synopsis: Great barrier Reef, 2010. After a dangerous dive to save his wife while exploring an 18th century merchant ship wreckage, Jay Fennel, a rugged and attractive marine archeologist lies brain dead in a Boston hospital. Jay’s dream-like coma takes us back in time to Pune, India in 1778. The Brits are invading the palaces and a young British captain named James Stewart (who bears a striking resemblance to Jay) is a about to embark on a dangerous mission. Along the way he encounters murder, deceit, betrayal and revenge. He falls deeply in love with an Indian She-warrior named Tulaja- an impossible love which he must fight for. Only the power of a ring can transcend time and save a life.
