Tovino to reunite with his ‘Godha’ director Basil Joseph for a superhero flick!
Basil Joseph is one of the most promising among the young crop of Malayali filmmakers. Coming from the Vineeth Sreenivasan school, Basil delivered back to back hits in ‘Kunjiramayanam’ and ‘Godha’. Last year, he had announced a big budget film with Mammootty and Tovino in the leads, but the movie got temporarily shelved. Basil was then supposed to a film with Biju Menon, which has also been delayed.
The latest we hear is that the director is all set to team up with his ‘Godha’ star Tovino Thomas. Our sources within the industry inform that the duo is reuniting for a big budget superhero flick. Sophia Paul’s Weekend Blockbusters, well known for funding hit films like ‘Bangalore Days’, ‘Munthirivallikal Thalirkkumbol’ and ‘Padayottam’, is producing this movie. An official announcement will be made shortly.
Tovino already has multiple projects in his kitty. He recently finished shooting for Salim Ahamed’s ‘And The Oscar Goes To’. He is also awaiting the release of ‘Ente Ummante Peru’ and ‘Maari 2’ both scheduled to hit screens for Christmas. ‘Virus’ with Aashiq Abu, ‘Uyare’ with Manu Ashokan, ‘Luca’ with Arun Bose, ‘Kilometers and Kilometers’ with Jeo Baby and ‘Kalki’ with Praveen Prabharam are his other upcoming films.
