Deepak Chopra goes Beyond Avatar

British director Suri Krishnamma brings his vividly imaginative style to filming self-help author Deepak Chopra’s Liquid Comics graphics novel Beyond. The film will take viewers to a supernatural world, where a reluctant hero battles his demons and embarks on an epic adventure to find his wife who vanishes from an Indian bazaar.

Liquid Comics announced on Wednesday, March 3, that it would co-produce Beyond with John Garland and Michael Dufficy.“Just like Avatar explores outer space, this explores inner space,” Chopra said at the Cinequest Film Festival in Silicon Valley, where he received the festival’s Life of a Maverick Award. How does it feel to be branded as a maverick? “I like to speak with a rebel’s voice, so it feels good,” Chopra replied.

Chopra, who is heralded in America as the “poet-prophet of alternative medicine”, has written the screenplay for Beyond and described his new project as an “adventure into other dimensions”.
