Jayasurya to star in a thriller titled John Luther
Debutant Abhijith Joseph is writing and directing this feature that also stars Aditi Ravi, Tanvi Ram, Deepak Parambol, and Indrans among others
Jayasurya will play a police officer in the upcoming thriller titled John Luther. Debutant Abhijith Joseph is writing and directing this feature that also stars Aditi Ravi, Tanvi Ram, Deepak Parambol, and Indrans among others.
Interestingly, John Luther is also the name of the character played by Idris Elba in the series Luther. However, Abhijith reveals that the BBC One crime drama has nothing to do with their film.
Abhijith, who comes from a film editing background, was part of the editing department of some films and ads. He shares that they will move ahead with the production after taking stock of the experience of filmmakers who are about to begin the shoot of their new projects.
“Some films are beginning production next month, and we’ll see how things go for them — if they’re able to shoot in outdoor locations without any hindrance or not,” he says. “As the pandemic has complicated and restricted many filmmakers, we have to consider all possibilities. And our script has more outdoor locations as opposed to indoor locations. In case there are issues, we will shoot the indoor sequences first and then proceed with the outdoor shoot depending on the permissions we get. As of now, we can’t predict anything.”
Produced by Thomas P Mathew and Christina Thomas, the film’s technical crew comprises cinematographer Roby Varghese Raj (Captain, The Great Father), editor Praveen Prabhakar (Koode, Bangalore Days), and composer Shaan Rahman (Love Action Drama).
Aside from John Luther, Jayasurya’s upcoming slate includes the 3D fantasy project Kathanar, Aposthalan, Vellam, the E Sreedharan biopic Ramasethu, Aadu 3, and the biopic of late actor Sathyan.
