According to a report from Behindwoods, the official remake of Mannan might go on floors next year, once Vijay is done with his 60th movie, which is to be helmed by ATM director Bharathan.
If this development materializes, Sivaji Productions might most probably bankroll the project. The original version of the film was directed and produced by P Vasu and actor Prabhu, respectively.
It is to be noted that Thala Ajith had earlier tasted success by remaking one of Rajinikanth's superhit movies, Billa. It is to be seen if Vijay can emulate what Ajith did in 2007.
Meanwhile, Theri, which is being directed by Atlee, has reportedly reached its post production stage. The highly anticipated film, which has Samantha and Amy Jackson in important roles, will release next year, most probably in the month of April.
While George C Williams of Kaththi fame has handled the camera, GV Prakash Kumar has taken care of the musical bit of the film.
Produced by Kalaipuli S Thanu, Theri has Prabhu, Raadhika Sarathkumar, Mahendran and Santhanam in supporting roles.
