Racing the Monsoon

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Michael Douglas said Monday in Mumbai that he will co-produce and appear in Racing the Monsoon, set to be shot entirely in India. This movie according to Yahoo this is the 3rd installment of the "Romancing the Stone" franchise that made Michael Douglas a star.

Douglas, 61, will produce and star in "Racing the Monsoon," which will revolve around a diamond robbery in India and follow up on the pair of 1980s hits, "Romancing the Stone" and "Jewel of the Nile," India's Percept Picture Company said Tuesday.

Aishwarya Rai, a successful Bollywood actress who is now trying to crack Hollywood, is likely to play the female lead.

Douglas is here on a scouting expedition for the adventure film, slated to begin production early next year. Douglas also said the project will be the first U.S./Indian feature co-production.

The film will be directed by Steve Carr (Daddy Day Care, Dr. Doolittle 2).

No release date set.
