IM Global has announced brisk sales for Anurag Basu's "Kites," starring India's Hrithink Roshan and Mexico's Barbara Mori, as well as "Kites: The Remix," Brett Ratner's shorter edited version highlighting the action aspects of the Bollywood romance. In addition to more traditional Bollywood-loving territories, deals have been set for France, the UK, Scandinavia, Benelux, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Eastern Europe, South Africa, numerous Asian territories, Latin America, Israel, and Australia and New Zealand. The original version, featuring lavish musical set pieces, will world premiere on May 21, while the shorter "Remix" will unspool a week later. [Basil Tsiokos]
