Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver) is defecting to Bollywood? Apparently so. In search of “creative freedom and audiences.” He’s there to scribe Extreme City, about “an American man who travels to India to help resolve a kidnapping case for his father-in-law, only to get caught up in a gangster plot.” But it isn’t assured to have musical numbers or be three hours long, apparently.
