Now, Gurinder Chadha will bend DreamWorks, too!

Gurinder Going Strong

Here is a nice story from about the many new films that Bend it Like Beckham director Gurinder Chadha has signed on to do. By the way, all three films are with major studios--and leads me to beleive that Manoj Night Shyamalan better bring his "A" game on his next film, b/c Chadha is going to challenge him for the spot as the biggest diasporic desi filmaker. And I guess you can never count out Mira Nair from this race contest either.

From the story:

Chadha, who is slated to direct I Dream Of Jeannie for Columbia Pictures, Nine Wives for New Line, will also direct the remake of a Korean epic, called Sassy Girl. The film focuses on the story of a young man who falls in love with a headstrong woman who moulds him into what she wants and then ditches him. Sassy Girl will be directed for DreamWorks SKG.
