Twentieth Century Fox and STAR have formed a joint venture, Fox STAR Studios, to produce local-language films in Asia for worldwide distribution. The joint venture will make its first foray in India. Fox Star studios will later expand to Greater China and other countries in South East Asia.
Fox STAR Studios India plans to produce Bollywood and Indian regional films. It will also build a national theatrical distribution footprint and enhanced capabilities in the home entertainment and digital media platforms in India while also leveraging Fox Theatrical Network’s global distribution strength across 44 countries worldwide.
The new venture has appointed Vijay Singh as the CEO. Singh currently holds the position of President, strategy and corporate development of STAR India.
“Our vision is to become a one-stop shop that encompasses film acquisition, development, marketing, production and distribution in India,” Singh said.
