Finally we have some news on the Lijo Pellissery flick Double Barrel, also to be known as Eratta Kuzhal, and this time there are no rumours folks, because this comes straight from the horse’s mouth, so to speak.
The majorly ambitious and creatively unique Lijo himself has announced the cast of the movie!
Yes, as reported earlier Prithviraj and Indrajith will play two of the main characters, but we have two new additions now – Asif Ali and Sunny Wayne!
Lijo has confirmed that all four will play the male leads in the movie and also that each of them will get equal importance in terms of screen space and time. Swati Reddy and Rachana Narayanankutty will tackle the female leads in the flick.
Now, there were some interesting rumours earlier that the movie will be a retro style movie set in the ’70s but now the director has slammed those down, much to the dismay of the fans excited by the news.
No, it won’t be a retro movie but do not worry, it is promised to be a light hearted comedy entertainer that will keep you glued to your seats… and not an all out action movie like it was reported by before.
Indrajith in a candid interview did call the movie very ‘Pulp Fiction-esque’. So get ready for some dark humour and memorable lines folks..
Earlier reports were true in the fact that the movie will be shot mainly in Goa.
In fact, Lijo says that the Goan culture will provide the backdrop to the story. This makes sense given the names of Prithvi’s and Indrajith’s characters – Panco and Vinci.
The actors will also be getting a makeover for the film that suits the look and feel of the movie, apparently.
Lijo Pellisery’s other movie which is still shelved, for financial reasons supposedly, is Antichrist. Let’s hope that one gets a new life soon as well. After all, the young film maker’s maiden venture Amen was a breath of fresh air and his style seems very offbeat and intriguing.
