We'll be totally honest, we kind of completely forgot this movie existed or was even happening, although with this latest bit of news, perhaps it's no surprise. But let's recap a bit, shall we? In the works since '90s, and originally set to star Brendan Fraser and Aishwarya Rai, filming finally got underway on Roland Joffe's "Singularity" in late 2010 with Josh Hartnett, Bipashu Basu and Neve Campbell. The film boasts an ambitious story, first taking place in 2020, centering on a modern day marine biologist Jay Fennel (Hartnett) who undertakes a near-fatal dive to save his wife Laura (Campbell) while exploring an 18th Century merchant ship wreckage. He winds up in a Boston hospital in a dream-like coma, where he envisions India in 1778 where British captain James Stewart (Hartnett, again) is about to embark on a dangerous mission and falls in love with a Marathi warrior named Tulaja Naik (Basu). But it seems from day one, there were problems.

Now, just six months later, a re-edited version is hitting is making its way to theaters via Tayrona Entertainment, in an attempt to bring the film to a wider audience who may have missed it the first time around.
