This one's straight from the horse's mouth. Director AL Vijay has confirmed that Vikram is playing a police officer in his forthcoming film, which will have Anushka and Amy Jackson as heroines.
"It will be an edge of the seat action thriller. It is a conscious decision that the genre should be entirely different when we (Vijay and Vikram) come together after Deiva Thirumagal," says the filmmaker.
To be produced by UTV Motion Pictures, the movie will be mostly shot abroad, especially the United States. Only certain portions will be canned in India and Vijay has left for the US to zero in on the locations. Shooting will kick-start at the US this December. The film will be a UTV Dhananjeyan - Ronnie Screwala production venture.
The shooting will start next month and will be completed in one go. It is being planned to release the film by May 2012, as a summer treat to the audience. Cinematography will be by Nirav Shah and editing by Antony while music by G V Prakash Kumar.
