After much delay on his very ambitious project, sources confirm that Vidhu Vinod Chopra has finally begun shooting for his first Hollywood film. While the shooting is on in the deserts of Death Valley in East California, buzz is that actor Vincent D’onofrio has joined the star cast.
According to sources, the film titled Broken Horses is a gangster film in true Chopra style. Written by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Abhijat Joshi, script consultant Jason Richman was also hired to work on the film.
Our source says, “Buzz is that Vincent has joined the cast of the film. The actor is known for his famous portrayal of Edgar (the Cockroach Man) in Men In Black.” Often referred to as an actor’s actor, Vincent’s work as a character actor has earned him the nickname of The Human Chameleon.
We even traced a cast member from the film on his social networking site, where he had stated “Had my fitting done for Broken Horses starring Vincent D’onofrio. Shooting Tomorrow”. After all they say, the proof of the pudding is in its eating!
There was also buzz a couple of years ago about Hollywood actor Mickey Rourke being a part of the star cast. However, ever since filming began, Mickey is yet to be spotted on the sets. With the actor slated to appear in three back-to-back films, we wonder how Mickey will make time for Vidhu!
