Mammootty to team up with Vysakh again for New York
The duo has previously worked together in Pokkiri Raja and Madhura Raja
After Madhura Raja, director Vysakh is teaming up with Mammootty again for a project titled New York. The news was shared by Vysakh on social media. Backed by UGM Productions, the same company behind Amar Akbar Antony and Kattappanayile Ritwik Roshan, the film will be shot completely in the United States.
Touted as a family action thriller, New York will have a script by Naveen John, who wrote the Unni Mukundan film, Ira.
Sharing the news, Vysakh wrote, “I am so happy to announce that I am once again joining with my dearest Mammookka. This time the whole movie is going to be shot in the USA. Titled New York, the movie will be bankrolled by UGM Productions, one of the leading production companies in Malayalam, and scripted by Ira fame Naveen John. I expect all your prayers and blessings that would support this family action thriller movie.”
Vysakh is known for delivering Malayalam’s first 100-crore film, Pulimurugan.
In New York, Mammootty is expected to be joined by some established names from Hollywood as well as Malayalam cinema. The team has reportedly roped in a Hollywood stunt director for the big-budget film.
Meanwhile, Mammootty is currently shooting for The Priest, his first project with Manju Warrier. The latter has joined the sets of the film, a thriller helmed by debutant Jofin T Chacko. He is also looking forward to the release of One, a political thriller which is expected to hit theatres by the end of February or early March.
