The first look poster of the film was unveiled in May. It was a mash up of Vikram’s multiple avatars in the film. Vikram is said to play a photographer in the film.
The project, scheduled to go on the floors in August, is being produced by Seven Scene Studio in association with Viacom 18 Studios.
The makers plan to release the film in April, 2020.
This film will be a Pan-Indian project catering to the Tamil, Hindi and Telugu audience.
It will be produced on a massive scale in association with Viacom 18 Motion Pictures.
Gnanamuthu, who made his directorial debut with Tamil horror-thriller Demonte Colony a few years ago, rose to fame with Tamil thriller Imaikka Nodigal last year.
The film featured Anurag Kashyap as the antagonist.
