Even before Vijay’s Bigil hits the screens, speculations are already rife about the Mersal-actor’s next film. The yet-to-be-titled project, tentatively referred to as Thalapathy 64, is directed by Maanagaram-fame Lokesh Kanagaraj.

The latest report states that Lokesh Kanagaraj has approached Vijay Sethupathi for the antagonist role in Thalapathy 64. The Vikram Vedha-actor, reportedly impressed with the script, is said to have given the initial go-ahead and is trying to adjust his dates to accommodate the biggie. Sethupathi notably played Rajinikanth's villain in Karthik Subbaraj's Petta earlier this year.

It's said that Lokesh's script is a dark thriller, which will have Vijay playing a character with grey shades. Names like Raashi Khanna, Kabir Singh-fame Kiara Advani, and Rashmika Mandanna are speculated to star as the female lead in the film, which is produced by Xavier Britto.

Rumours are also rife that Angamaly Diaries-fame Antony Varghese has been roped in to play a pivotal role in the film. In addition, Arjun's name has also been making the rounds.

Thalapathy 64's cinematography will be handled by Sathyan Sooryan, while the editing responsibilities go to Philomin Raj. The stunt direction and the art direction are by ‘stunt’ Silva and Satheesh Kumar, respectively. The rest of the cast and crew are yet to be finalised.

Meanwhile, Vijay's next release, Bigil, directed by Atlee, will hit the screens during the Diwali weekend.
