Mammootty in The Priest

Mammootty's upcoming film with debutant director Jofin T Chacko has been titled The Priest. The first-look poster reveales Mammootty's titular character in a hooded cassock against the backdrop of a church.

The film is said to be a thriller with script and dialogues co-written by Deepu Pradeep and Shyam Menon, based on a story by Jofin.

Filming of the project, which marks the first collaboration of Mammootty and Manju Warrier, is currently underway. Nikhila Vimal has been confirmed to appear in the film in addition to Sreenath Bhasi, Saniya Iyyappan, and Baby Monica (Kaithi, Raatsasan). Jagadish, Ramesh Pisharodi, and Madhupal are also part of the cast.

Akhil George (Iblis) has been roped in as director of photography while Shameer Muhammed is on board as editor. Anto Joseph, B Unnikrishnan, and VN Babu are jointly producing the film.

The Priest is among Mammootty's confirmed early releases in 2020 apart from Shylock (January 23) and One (March-April).
