Freida Pinto to Star in Short Film Sequel 'Two Bellmen Two' (Exclusive)
'Two Bellman Two' will be shot on location at the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai.
Frieda Pinto will star in Two Bellmen Two, a short film from JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts and Marriott International's Content Studio.
The short film will be a sequel to the original, Two Bellmen, and is slated for a multi-platform deal in January of 2016. This includes a limited theatrical release, as well as a release on YouTube, Marriott.com and additional digital-platform rollouts.
The comedic action film follows two bellmen as they race through the streets of Dubai to rescue a confidential presentation for a high-powered businesswoman, played by Pinto.
William Spencer and Caine Sinclaire, two Hollywood stuntmen, will also star as the titular bellmen.
Two Bellmen Two will be shot on-location in JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai, and will be produced in partnership with Substance Over Hype.
This will be the fourth original short film for the studio. Previous ventures have included Two Bellman and French Kiss, and the studio is currently in production on its third film in partnership with Renaissance Hotels, entitled Business Unusual.
"Our short films are creating raving brand fans and driving commerce for our hotels, and I’m excited to expand the franchise even further, particularly in a world filled with so many screens and marketing messages," said David Beebe, VP global creative and content marketing for Marriott International.
Two Bellmen Three also is in the works, and is set to be shot on location at one of JW Marriott’s properties in the Asia-Pacific region.
Pinto is known for her roles in Slumdog Millionaire and Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Her upcoming films include Jungle Book: Origins and Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups. She's repped by CAA.
