Tovino Thomas has signed a film called 563 St. Charles Street that will be helmed by Rony Roy and bankrolled by B Rakesh under the banner Universal Cinema. It is a horror flick that has been inspired by some true-life incidents. The film will be shot extensively in the US and Canada. Apart from directing the film, Rony Roy has also penned the story of this film. Sangeeth Jain has penned the screenplay and the rest of the technical crew includes Jakes Bejoy for music composition and Sreejith Sarang for editing with Jigme Tenzing cranking the camera.
Tovino posted on Facebook about the movie, “It's a blessing for an actor to be able to work on films from different genres. Having debutante director Rony Roy, a veteran producer like B Rakesh sir, and a banner like Universal Cinema to bring this unique story to the silver screen makes it all the more special. Truly excited to be working on this project, which will also be my first crossover! Welcome to the menacing labyrinth that is 563 St. Charles Street..” His post carried the hashtag - 'don't believe in what your eyes are telling you'.
Tovino has been on a roll with several of his films coming out in recent weeks. And The Oskar Goes To and Luca came out last month, and he played the lead in both of them. There has also been Virus and Lucifer before that, in which Tovino played important roles. His film Kalki too will release next month.
And there are more to come. The actor currently has Edakkadu Bettalion 06, Kilometers and Kilometers, Minnal Murali, Joe and a few other projects in his kitty. It was also recently reported that Tovino will be playing a sort of anti-hero in another upcoming film, Pallichattambi – An Epic of a Crusader, directed by Dijo Jose Anthony who made Queen.
