Jeethu Joseph’s next after Aadhi is with Emraan Hashmi
We had recently reported about Jeethu Joseph entering Bollywood. The director is making his B-Town debut with a horror thriller starring Emraan Hashmi and Rishi Kapoor in the lead. This yet-to-be-titled movie is said to be the remake of an English movie. Reportedly, the makers approached Jeethu after acquiring the remake rights.
India’s leading trade analyst tweeted that this upcoming movie will be a crime thriller with elements of horror. The movie will be produced by Sunil Kheterpal and presented by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures. It will be shot in a single schedule between May and July this year. More details regarding the cast and crew will be announced in the coming weeks.
Jeethu Joseph is one of the most sought after filmmakers in Mollywood. In 2013, he took the whole industry by storm with his Mohanlal starrer Drishyam. It was the highest grossing Malayalam movie of that time and was successfully remade in all major Indian languages. Jeethu himself helmed the remake in Tamil with Kamal Haasan in the lead. His Prithviraj starrer Memories, also a crime thriller, was widely acclaimed and later got remade in Tamil as Aarathu Sinam.
Jeethu’s last outing Aadhi starring Pranav Mohanlal is doing extraordinary business worldwide. Releasing on Republic Day, the movie opened to positive reviews by the critics as well as the commoners.
