Canton, Graphic India find Sadhu writer

18 June 2014 1:03 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Mark Canton and comic publisher Graphic India have hired Mukunda Michael Dewil to adapt the Indian superhero comic book series The Sadhu for the big screen.

The story centres on a young Westerner trained by the mystic Indian Sadhus.

Graphic India co-founders Sharad Devarajan and Gotham Chopra are producing the feature with Canton and David Hopwood.

“Besides his evident skills as a filmmaker, Mukunda has life experiences so close to what’s in the graphic novels that he is the perfect fit for our project,” said David Hopwood Sr, svp of development and production at Atmosphere Entertainment.

“Much like 300, The Sadhu is rich with mythic characters from a fantastical culture,” said Mukunda, who left a lucrative job at Ogilvy Advertising in Cape Town while in his 20s to live with the Sadhus of Vrindhavan in India.

“Throw in a far out mystical superhero and I think we’ve got the ingredients for another groundbreaking franchise.” »

“300″ producer Mark Canton (pictured above) and Graphic India are moving forward on superhero movie “The Sadhu,” bringing on “Vehicle 19″ director Mukunda Michael Dewil to direct from his own script.

The project, focusing on a 19th century British soldier trained in supernatural arts by hermits known as sadhus, was unveiled in March.

Graphic India co-founders Sharad Devarajan and Gotham Chopra will produce alongside Canton and David Hopwood.

The story mirrors Dewil’s own life. During his late 20s he left his lucrative job at Ogilvy Advertising in South Africa to live with the sadhus of Vrindavan, India.

“Besides his evident skills as a filmmaker, Mukunda has life experiences so close to what’s in the graphic novels that he is the perfect fit for our project,” Hopwood said.

Dewil directed action-thriller “Vehicle 19,” starring Paul Walker, from his own script. He also directed 2011′s “Retribution.”
