PRODUCERS GUILD (US) AWARDS 2009 - WINNERS

THE FILM THAT SHOULDN’T HAVE BEEN MADE
Accepting the award for Producer of the Year, Christian Colson said of his film Slumdog Millionaire, “We are excited and delighted by the fact that our film continues to be embraced here in the US - some could argue that this is the film that shouldn’t even have been made. There were no stars.... The budget was low, but not low enough. It is in Hindi. It is rated R (the US equivalent of MA). It wasn’t possible to pitch in 20 words or less.”


The fact that audiences and critics have so embraced the film, Colson added, is a testament to the “genius” of America, where anything is possible.
