The Library of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has added the screenplay of DAM 999 as part of its Permanent Core Collection, which is accessible to students, film makers, writers, actors and others from the field of cinema for the purpose of research. Though Indian films like Chak De! India Devdas and Lagaan are already a part of this prestigious library collections, DAM 999 is the first movie to enter the Library even before its theatrical release anywhere around the globe.

The film features Rajit Kapur, Joshua Fredric Smith, Linda Arsenio, Gary Richardson, Jaala Pickering, Ashish Vidyarthi, Vinay Rai, Vimala Raman, Megha Burman and Jineet Rath.
The movie will be released in three regional languages – Hindi, Tamil and Telugu along with English. The film is presented by BizTV Network and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures in India will open nationwide on November 25.
