As everyone knows the snake woman popularly known as Naagin is getting back in a big way to Bollywood.

With this movie the leading lady Mallika Sherwat might also be looking out for a rejuvenation of her limping career as a result of two big time flops.

The film has now been given the title 'Hissss' and more than expectations there is the factor of curiosity of how the movie when finished will turn out to be.

This curiosity gets its fuel from the thinking which constantly makes the film lovers imagine how the new age Naagin will be portrayed, how good the leading lady will be and from the fact that as the movie is directed by a foreigner, a way of film crafting different from that of the Indian film makers can be expected.

The movie is being directed by Jennifer Lynch who is the daughter of the 4 time Oscar nominee and 2 time Cannes film festival winner David Lunch.

She has made a movie called 'Surveillance' which got fantastic reviews when show at the Cannes Film Festival 2008.

Jennifer surely will not waste this chance to create a high impact movie and thus grab the attention of Indian film lovers.

We will hope that this film maker who by making 'Hissss' wishes to make her own contribution to the tradition of cult thriller movies such as 'Silence Of The Lambs' and 'Predator' will not disappoint us.

The revenge story is being produced by Vikram Singh & Goving Menon of Split Image Pictures.

'Hissss' will narrate how the 4000 year old folk story of Naagin attracts a cruel American who decides to travel to India and find out the truth.

So in 2009, the character George States played by Jeff Douchette travels to the jungles of India and manage to capture the mate of the snake woman.

This action of the villain leads the Naagin to transform into a gorgeous attractive woman who comes to the modern world fuming with vengeance and armed with her poisonous venom to find her captured lover.

This desperate search of the protagonist for her soul mate results in horrifying deaths and slender escapes from the claws of death.

Irrfan Khan plays a prominent role in the movie.

One reason why this movie is a must watch for all the movie buffs is because of the involvement of Robert Kurtzman who is considered as a special effects and make up genius.

A mere glance at his work profile is enough to know the quality which can be expected from him.

He is same man behind the visual effects of movies such as 'Evil Dead' and 'Spy Kids'.

He is a trusted team man of the path breaking film maker Quentin Tarantino having worked with him in all his films.

Robert Kurtzman has also worked with Robert Rodriguez.

He wrote the story of 'From Dusk Till Dawn' directed by Mr. Rodriguez.

He has also worked along with Tom Cruise for the film 'Vanilla Sky' and John Travolta for 'Pulp Fiction'.

'Hissss' will be hitting the big screen by the middle of 2009.
