I knew Munnbhai M.B.B.S was being remade as a Hollywood movie; its been in the news for a while now, but this is fresh news - Chris Tucker has officially been signed now. Is this the start of a new trend? Are we going to see more stars (Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie) act in remakes of Devdas and other mushy love stories, have songs and dances, blind mothers/sisters and corrupt politicians & villians in white suits!!

Chris Tucker ("Rush Hour") is set to star in a Hollywood remake of Bollywood hit "Munnabhai MBBS" says The Associated Press.
The remake's director, Mira Nair ("Vanity Fair", "Monsoon Wedding"), told the Mumbai Mirror about Tucker's casting and said filming would begin on the retitled "Gangster M.D." after Tucker finishes making "Rush Hour 3."
Munnabhai MBBS tells the story of a mafia leader who pretends to be a doctor whenever his parents visit him from their village. But when his cover is blown, he decides to better himself by trying to become a doctor -- which he hopes will also prove himself to the woman he loves and her father, a hospital superintendent.
Nair said she may cast some actors from the Bollywood original, and is on the lookout for an Indian woman to star opposite Tucker.
