Ranjeet S. Marwa
He is the man behind All That You Love Will Be Carried Away Dollar Baby Film.
SKSM: May you introduce yourself to our readers? Who are you and what do you do?
Ranjeet S. Marwa: My name is Ranjeet S. Marwa & I am a film writer & director from Birmingham, England.
SKSM: How would you decide that shoot movies was your mission?
Ranjeet S. Marwa: I came across movies accidentally. My cousin was at college at the time doing his media studies. One of his assignments was to shoot a trailer and he asked me to help him make it. From that day one, I was hooked.
SKSM: Why All that you love will be carried away was cancelled? Is it possible for Stephen King fans to see it in a future?
Ranjeet S. Marwa: It was cancelled due to my own busy schedule. Maybe one day I’ll get a chance to work on it again but as of right now, it’s not in the pipeline.
SKSM: Who would be involved into this project?
Ranjeet S. Marwa: At the time of development, I had Anthony Illott (Wrong Turn 6) set to star in it. We worked together in getting the script together but ultimately, time and scheduling conflicted with the project.
SKSM: How come you picked All that you love will be carried away to develop into a movie? What is it in the story that you like so much?
Ranjeet S. Marwa: From the start of my career, my films and characters have mostly been about isolated and conflicted people. People who believe their purpose is different in life. Thats what I found in this story – the story of isolation, loneliness and abandonment.
SKSM: This could be your 3rd Dollar Baby Film as a filmmaker. Which was your most challenging film? And your most challenging Dollar Baby film?
Ranjeet S. Marwa: My first Dollar Baby, ‘The Man Who Loved Flowers’ was the most challenging for me because at the time, I had never ever adapted anyone else work other than my own. Now however, I find it slightly easier as I try not to see what came before but mainly what inspires me to make the film and what my own interpretation would be.
SKSM: Did you know that this story has already been filmed as Dollar Baby? Have you seen any of these adaptations? If so, what do you think about it?
Ranjeet S. Marwa: I know it has been made many times before. To me that isn’t an issue because its that filmmakers own vision of the story. I have seen maybe one adaptation that was made in 2018. It was incredible to watch. Very well made and structured. Changing the gender of the lead was also a genius idea (spoiler for anyone who hasn’t seen it, sorry).
SKSM: What are you working nowadays?
Ranjeet S. Marwa: I’ve been quite busy over the last year. I made two theatrical films. One played in the UK and the other in LA. A previous film of mine also played in LA last year, too. Three films that I put my heart and soul into all premiered in the same year which was amazing. I’m currently working on a serial killer film with veteran Hollywood actor, Bruce Payne (Passenger 57 / Dungeons & Dragons).
SKSM: What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you?
Ranjeet S. Marwa: I went from being a youtube filmmaker to a TV & Theatrical Film Director.
SKSM: Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions. Is there anything you want to say to our readers?
Ranjeet S. Marwa: Thank you for allowing me to be a part of the Dollar Baby elite members & lets all thank Frank Darabont for paving the way for us all but most importantly, lets all thank Mr. Stephen King for providing us with his stories and imagination.
SKSM: Would you like to add something else to this interview?
Ranjeet S. Marwa: Watch out for my upcoming films this year and 2020. You’ll be amazed at what you see. Thank You.
