The Pirates of Diego Garcia to be made on a lavish scale with an international crew
As we had told earlier, the ‘Kayamkulam Kochunni’ duo of Nivin Pauly and Rosshan Andrrews are reuniting for another ambitious flick. Their upcoming movie, tentatively titled as ‘The Pirates of Diego Garcia’ is a survival thriller with sea as the backdrop. Pre-production works for the movie are currently progressing. The team is planning to make the movie on a big scale with an international crew.
‘The Pirates of Diego Garcia’ is said to be the dream project of Nivin and Rosshan Andrrews. They have approached a few big production houses and are expected to sign the dotted lines soon. The latter is debuting as a scriptwriter with this movie. Though the project was first announced with Unni R as the writer, he later opted out due to some unknown reasons.
Rosshan is working on the script after doing research for over a year. The movie is based on a real life incident that occurred in Kerala. The story apparently revolves around the life of fishermen and some true stories have been included in the narrative. More details are expected to be revealed shortly.
Meanwhile, ‘Kayamkulam Kochunni’ continue to find decent occupancy in centres across Kerala. Releasing on October 11, the movie opened to massive numbers at the box office. As per collection reports, the movie has already gone past the Rs 50 crore mark.
