'THE SADHU' EPIC MOVIE ADVENTURE ON INDIAN MYTHOLOGY FROM '300' PRODUCER! SUPER GENIUSES ASSEMBLE IN 'SCORPION' SERIES WITH ELYES GABEL, EDDIE KAYE THOMAS! MELLISA GEORGE, ODED FEHR JOIN RUFUS SEWELL IN NEW ABC DRAMA

'THE SADHU' INDIAN EPIC FROM
 '300' PRODUCER MARK CANTON
And while Greek epic 300 RISE OF AN EMPIRE is scoring millions around the globe, its producer Mark Canton (who also brought us IMMORTALS blockbuster epic) already has another epic adventure in his sleeve! He will develop a movie out of Indian comic book THE SADHU! The story follows James Jenson, a British soldier whose family is brutally murdered by a corrupt superior officer in the Indian colony of Bengal in 1858. Jenson escapes in the remote forests of India, where he seeks refuge with the mysterious Indian mystics known as sadhus. After years of being trained in their supernatural arts, Jenson must decide whether to use his newfound powers for inner peace and enlightenment, or vengeance. Using the ancient mythology of India the producers are hoping to launch a new movie franchise.

  8. The Sadhu looks intriguing. You know, I don't know enough about their cultural and religious believes to anticipate how this plays out. I do know how much they hated the bloody British for occupying their land and raping it's resources. So the idea of a Brit in that period being a hero is interesting.

    I do love the way they use colour and they've some sexy men and women. Hope to see lots of those and scantily clad.

    1. I don't know much about it, either, but I think their mythology is complex. And we know they've had their share of suffering throughout history :(

  11. I have enjoyed watching Melissa George as Angel in Home and Away, an Aussie drama, for years. See she is now in The Good Wife, an indulgence of mine. Her overseas career seems to be taking off.
