Mammootty is all set to team up with Amala Paul, for the first time. Reportedly, Amala has been roped in to play the female lead opposite Mammootty, in Johny Antony's next.
According to the sources, the movie which has been titled as Thoppil Joppan, will have the megastar in the title role Joppan. Interestingly, Joppan will be yet another 'achaayan' character from Mammootty.
Thoppil Joppan is a comeback movie for director Johny Antony, who is going through a low phase in his career. The movie is scripted by Nishad Koya, who penned the blockbuster movie Ordinary.
Johny has earlier directed Mammootty in some popular movies, including Thuruppugulan and Thappana. The director's last outing, Bhaiyya Bhaiyya had miserably failed to impress the audiences.
Mammootty is expected to join Thoppil Joppan, after completing the Nithin Panicker's Kasaba and Lijo Pellissery's next. The movie will be shot at the various locations of Pala, Wagamon, and Thodupuzha.
Amala Paul, on the other hand, is planning for a track change in her career with some different roles. She was last seen in Malayalam, in the Joshiy directed Mohanlal movie Lailaa O Lailaa.
