For the unversed, Atlee Kumar has donned the hat of the director for a few of the Vijay Thalapathy starrers, including Mersal, and Bigil. Post Vijay’s appearance at director Atlee’s wife Priya’s baby shower in December, several media reports speculated that the actor-director duo is said to reunite after Vijay completes the shoot of Leo, directed by Lokesh Kangaraj. Shedding some light on the rumours making rounds on the internet, a report by Pinkvilla has stated that Vijay and Atlee are in talks for an upcoming action entertainer.
A source close to the development informed the portal, “Atlee has got the idea okayed from Thalapathy Vijay and also the producers. He will work towards locking the screenplay soon as the idea is to take the film on floors from September/October this year. The film will be Atlee’s next directorial after Jawan, which is presently on the floors. While the idea is green lit, the paperwork will happen only after the release of Jawan.” The source also added that Jawan's shoot will be wrapped by March.
Speaking of the production banner, earlier, it was reported that Bigil producer AGS Entertainment has bankrolled the film. However, the report claims that Sun Picture will be producing this upcoming film. The source concluded by saying, “The film will most likely feature Vijay in lead, until and unless something terribly goes wrong on the casting front in the next few months.”
If everything goes well, it will be Vijay and Atlee’s fourth collaboration.
