Initially titled The Secret History of the Dalai Lamas, the film has now been titled The Last Call. The film, based on a script by Jean-Claude Carriere, will be co-directed by Kounen and Anne Paris.

The Last Call will focus on Tibetan culture and the history of the Dalai Lama all the way from 14th century, including the key moments in Tibet’s history. It will feature real documentary footage and dramatised re-enactments involving the earlier incarnations with excerpts from an interview with the current Dalai Lama.

“The flm will look at the lives of all the Dalai Lamas, and the philosophy espoused by them,” Manuel Collas de La Roche, a paris-based producer of the proposed film and a former Tibetan Buddhist monk, earlier told Deccan Herald.

According to earlier media reports, the filmmakers will will also try to get Sharon Stone, the actress who practices Tibetan Buddhism. Apparently, she will act as a narrator, while another practicing Buddhist Richard Gere is also likely to be a part of the film.

And the filmmakers were also said to be planning to rope the father-son duo of Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan to star in the film.

The $4.9 million film is slated for shooting in October and November this year.

The shooting of the film were earlier scheduled to take place in places like Ladakh, Himachal Pradesh and in some other parts of the Indian subcontinent.

The filmmakers have now decided to shoot the film in Morocco and not in Ladakh, Roche told Phayul.

He also confirmed that Sharon Stone and Amitabh Bachchan will not be involved in the film.
