Anurag Kahsyap’s two-part mafia drama ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ is now set for a release in North America and Los Angeles.
An art house distributor, Cinelicious Pics, will release the film that tracks 70 violent years in the lives of two mafia families battling to control over the coal mining town of Wasseypur, reported The Deadline.
“Thrilled to announce that we’ve picked up Kashyap’s epic crime saga Gangs of Wasseypur!” the distributor said on Twitter.
The movie, which was screened at the Cannes Film Festival in 2012, will be presented stateside by ‘The Grey’ producer Adi Shankar.
‘Gangs…’ was released in two parts in India, owing to its five-and-a half hour duration.
Similarly, the film will be launched in a platform release in New York and Los Angeles with Part I and Part II hitting theatres a week apart.
