Frieda Pinto drinks ‘Black Thirst’

HollywoodNews.com: “Slumdog Millionaire” actress Frieda Pinto is about to woo America again as an Arabian princess.

Pinto is set to headline “Black Thirst,” a film from Jean-Jacques Annaud about the U.S.’ moves to drill oil in the Gulf region. The backdrop for the film is the 1920s and it’s based on “South of the Heart: A Novel of Modern Arabia” by Hans R. Ruesch. “South of the Heart” was first published in 1957.

Speaking with the Daily Mail, Producer Tarak Ben Ammar says, “This is the story of an Arab prince in 1929. He’s well-educated and he’s married to a beautiful princess. He’s confronted with the problem of what the discovery of oil will bring to the Bedouins.

“The Americans want the oil, but what will be the real cost?”

Film will shoot in Tunisia and is expected to topline Tahar Rahim, Antonio Banderas and Mark Strong.

Digital Spy scored the news as well.
