Script works completed for Mammootty-Vysakh film New York
After the superhit success of ‘Pokkiriraja’ and ‘Madhura Raja’, Mammootty and director Vysakh will be teaming up for a new film titled ‘New York’. UGM Productions is producing the film. It is learnt that script works have already been completed. The film is scripted by Naveen John, who had earlier penned the film ‘Ira’.
As per the makers, ‘New York’ will be a family-oriented action thriller. The makers had originally planned to shoot the film completely in the US. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, there is an uncertainty prevailing regarding film shooting in foreign countries.
Director Vysakh is still hopeful that the film can be made as planned without any changes in the script. He firmly believes that they can recreate the setting of New York in India itself with the help of computer graphics and other latest technologies. More updates regarding the project is awaited.
Apart from ‘New York’, Mammootty has also committed for ‘Bilal’ and an untitled project with Sathyan Anthikad. Fortunately, he managed to finish his portions for ‘The Priest’ before the lockdown was announced. Debutant Jofin T Chacko is directing the film.
