Jeethu Joseph, the popular filmmaker has carved a place for himself in the Malayalam film industry with exceptional films like Drishyam and Memories. As we all know, Jeethu Joseph is now once again joining hands with Mohanlal for the upcoming action thriller, which has been titled Ram. In a recent interview given to The Cue, the filmmaker made an interesting revelation about his next outing.
According to Jeethu Joseph, he is currently working on a couple of scripts, and one among them is of an out and out investigation thriller. To the uninitiated, the Drishyam director made his directorial debut with the 2007-released investigation thriller Detective, which had featured Suresh Gopi in a double role. Later in 2013, he directed Memories with Prithviraj Sukumaran in the lead role, which has been considered as one of the finest investigation thrillers made in Malayalam cinema to date.
However, this project will start rolling only after the director completes Mohanlal's Ram and another untitled project, which is said to be a thriller which is based on a moderate budget. Jeethu Joseph also revealed that he might start working on his next outing before wrapping up Ram, as the Mohanlal starrer has been delayed due to coronavirus threat.
The filmmaker decided to proceed with his next project before wrapping the Mohanlal starrer, since it is not possible to resume the shooting of Ram amidst the lockdown. The major portions of the action thriller are supposed to be shot in London, which is impossible right now due to the lockdown. Thus, the Mohanlal starrer has been delayed indefinitely, until the world comes back to its normal state.
Thus, the director is planning to kickstart his next outing once the Kerala government permits film shootings in the state. The movie which is made in a small budget will be completely shot in Kerala. The director is expected to make an official announcement on the project, very soon.
