Nelsan Ellis to be in ‘Reluctant Fundamentalist’True Blood’s Nelsan Ellis is to be in Mira Nair’s controversial adaptation of Mohsin Hamid’s novel ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist‘ which started shooting this week on location in Atlanta, New York, Lahore, Delhi and Istanbul.

Interestingly, Mira has managed to get permission to shoot in Lahore where the novel is largely set.

The Reluctant Fundamentalist is a riveting thriller about Changez, a young Pakistani man chasing corporate success on Wall Street in the era of globalization. After September 11th , Changez experiences a seismic shift in his own attitude, unearthing allegiances more fundamental than money, power, and maybe even love.

Riz Ahmed (Four Lions, Black Gold) stars in the lead role of Changez alongside actors Kate Hudson (Bride Wars, Nine, Something Borrowed), Liev Schreiber (Salt, X-Men: Origins, The Manchurian Candidate), Kiefer Sutherland (24).  Also appearing in the film are Nelsan Ellis, Martin Donovan, Om Puri, Shabana Azmi, Haluk Bilginer, and Meesha Shafi.

Adapted by Bill Wheeler, Mohsin Hamid, and Ami Boghani and produced by Lydia Dean Pilcher, The Reluctant Fundamentalist, is the second major international production to receive financing from the Doha Film Institute (DFI).]
