"John Tucker Must Die" star Jesse Metcalfe will topline an India-America cross-cultural rom-com movie entitled "The Other End of the Line."
Landing his next big screen stint after "Loaded" which is about to come up this November, Jesse Metcalfe has given his agreement to take part in a new romantic comedy flick titled "The Other End of the Line" which Ashok Amritraj's Hyde Park Entertainment has just greenlit to be made.
An India-America cross-cultural feature, project concerns an Indian call-center operative who travels to San Francisco to be with a man she has only met over the phone. James Dodson will direct from Tracey Jackson's script with production to begin in mid October in Mumbai before moving to USA.
In the meantime, Amritraj is serving as the producer while his Hyde Park's senior exec, Patrick Aiello, will both executive produce and oversee production. Pic is set as a partnership with MGM, which owns distribution rights in North America, with Hyde Park Intl. handling all international territories.
"This project was an organic opportunity for my mandate of identifying new and innovative ways to continually bridge the U.S. with the Asian continent and its multiple film markets," Amritraj remarked. "This high-concept unique story offered Hyde Park a great entertainment platform to increase Hyde Park's foot-print in Asia."
