Bollywood Films Inspiration Or Plagiarism: Bang Bang And Knight And Day
The 2010 Hollywood movie Knight And Day, starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz, was a spy-romcom flick directed by James Mangold. Now, director Siddharth Anand is geared up to officially remake it with Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif playing the male and female leads respectively. While, we’ve already seen Katrina Kaif in a spy-romcom opposite Salman Khan in the 2012 movie Ek Tha Tiger, Kat fans will once again get to see the lady doing some action stunts here.
Ek Tha Tiger had Conrad Palmisano as its stunt director who has under his belt films like Rambo – First Blood, Lethal Weapon and First Blood. If rumours are to be believed, they say we will see Palmasino as the stunt director for Bang Bang, the proposed name for the Knight and Day remake. Conrad Palmisano also directed the stunts for Dhoom:3.
Bang Bang is been taken as some kind of a tribute to the Nancy Sinatra number from the Quentin Tarantino movie Kill Bill with the same title. Of course only more information can tell if it indeed is a tribute or merely inspired.
After Jab Tak Hai Jaan, the Kashmir Valley will see the Bang Bang team shooting there. The team will be leaving on the 13th Feb, which is the day just before St. Valentine’s Day.
