Unconfirmed reports are that the Sandalwood actor Kichcha Sudeep is all set to make his Hollywood debut. Though the star himself is tight-lipped about his Hollywood project, sources in the tinsel town say that he has been chosen to play a role in the Hollywood flick Risen.
The film will be directed by Eddie Arya and the prep work is currently going on in the US. Apparently, this is a science fiction movie that is about a meteorite attack and how it results in contamination in a small town in Alaska. The film is inspired from a real life incident that happened a few years ago at Chelyabinsk in Russia and will be shot in the US, Canada and at the Jenolan Forest, according to the Daily Telegraph.
Sudeep is currently busy in Bangkok shooting for the Kannada movie The Villain. He is sharing the screen space with Shivraj Kumar in this flick, which is touted to be one of the costliest movies to be ever made in Sandalwood. The Villain is directed by Jogi Prem and it has Amy Jackson making her debut in Sandalwood. Reports are that the team will be flying down to London as soon as Shivraj Kumar is ready to join the unit and the major portion of it would shot there.
On Risen, sources are rife with the news that Sudeep would be flying down to the US to discuss the project with the filmmakers. During this visit, he will get instructions about his role and the preparations he has to make to get into the skin of the character. Sudeep will be playing an army officer in Risen, it is said.
The star, who updates his fans about his projects, has not yet made an official announcement about his Hollywood debut yet.
