Vijay and director Atlee are all set to join hands for the third time in a project currently dubbed as Thalapathy 63. The film, to be produced by AGS Entertainment, was officially launched last month in Chennai.
The film had a soft launch in the presence of Vijay, Atlee and the makers of the film and it is believed that the regular shooting will only commence from January 2019. It has also been confirmed that the film will hit the screens for Diwali next year. The project marks the third consecutive collaboration of AR Rahman and Vijay after Mersal and Sarkar. It has already been confirmed that Nayanthara has been signed as the leading lady.
The latest update is that the team is currently scouting for locations in Los Angeles. The producer of the film, Archana Kalpathi, took to her Instagram profile and wrote that the crew is currently in Los Angeles, scouting for locations.
She posted a picture of herself, director Atlee and the film's cinematographer GK Vishnu, captioned 'Thalapathy 63 from Kollywood to Hollywood'. Interestingly, the introduction song of Vijay‚Äôs Sarkar was shot in Las Vegas, America.
Rumours have already started to make the rounds that some portion of the film, tipped to be a sports drama, will be shot in the US. It has also been rumoured that Vijay plays a coach in the film, which has music by AR Rahman and this will be his third successive outing with the actor.
The makers are yet to reveal the complete cast list. However, if the industry grapevine is anything to go by, well-known comedians Yogi Babu and Vivek have landed key roles in the project.
If Yogi Babu is indeed part of the project, it will be his third consecutive film with Vijay after Mersal and Sarkar. According to a statement released by AGS Entertainment last week, the film will be a pucca mass entertainer and will deal with a genre that will be first-of-its-kind for Vijay.
