Hollywood blockbuster "300" will reportedly have a Hindi remake. Producer Firoz Nadiadwala is said to have bought the Bollywood remake rights of the epic action movie.

The report said that Firoz is looking for a proper cast for the film and will make many changes in the script in order to make it appropriate for the Indian audience. "The film will work with the right kind of casting. The project is a long way from here as it requires a lot of rewrites to make it suitable for Indian audience," the SpotboyE quoted a source as saying.

Although the report did not mention much about the lead role or cast in Hindi remake of "300," Bollywood Masala had earlier reported that Vidyut Jammwal will be seen playing the lead role that was played by Gerard Butler in the original film. The report had also said that Vidyut will use an Indian form of Martial Arts in the upcoming remake of "300," which will be directed by "Neerja" director Ram Madhvani.

"300," released in 2007, was a fictional battle film, based on a comic series of the same name. Directed by Zack Synder, the movie was highly appreciated for its visualisation and action.

Meanwhile, Siddharth Anand is all set to make the Hindi remake of another Hollywood hit movie- "Rambo." Siddharth acquired the Bollywood remake rights of the Sylvester Stallone starrer two years ago. 

Although there has not been any confirmation on the cast of the upcoming remake, the film-maker had said that Hrithik Roshan is fit to play the lead role in the film and at the same time, he had hinted on casting a new-comer. "Hrithik is always on top of my mind but I haven't finalised anyone as yet. It can be a new actor as well," Siddharth told the Times of India.
