Hollywood Reporter: Finland’s Osmo to Produce 3D Animation Based on Indian Epic

 

Lithuania’s Arturas Pozdniakovas will direct “The Legend of King Nal,” based on the legend of the Mahabharata.

Helsinki-based producers Osmo Production Oy are in pre-production on The Legend of King Nal, a major 3D animated adaptation of a story from Indian Vedic epic, the Mahabharata.
