Mumbai: Popular reality show Bigg Boss is now headed for the big screen - as a horror comedy!

Endemol India, producers of Bigg Boss, along with Select Media Holdings' film production arm, Moving Pictures, will jointly produce the horror comedy, based on the experiences of the people in the Bigg Boss house. The movie will go on the floors next year.

"The success of Bigg Boss has achieved epic proportions, where we have seen that it has become a part of people's daily lives. One of the biggest advantages is its ability to cut across people of all age groups. We are certain that we will be able to replicate the success and recreate the unpredictability of this format on the silver screen as well," Deepak Dhar, CEO, Endemol India, said in a statement.

Nitin Tej Ahuja, director, Select Media Holdings, feels Bigg Boss has a great cinematic potential.

" Bigg Boss is one of the most popular entertainment properties in India, and therefore a perfect fit for us as a production house focused on quality commercial cinema," said Ahuja.

"As a concept and a format, Bigg Boss inherently has a fabulous cinematic potential and we are looking forward to working with Endemol India in bringing this very exciting property to the big screen," he added.

The cast of the film is being finalised and the makers have approached some of the contestants from the previous seasons of the reality show.
