Shutter was the directorial debut of Joy Mathew, and was a surprising gem in the thriller genre to hit Mollywood in recent years. The flick was a success, both commercially and critically, and proved to be one among many of Mollywood films to be remade in other languages.
Well, the Marathi version just finished its filming, and now there’s news that a Tamil remak eis in the works. The man who will produce the remake is none other than director AL Vijay, the husband of actress Amala Paul.
However, it looks like the Deiva Thirumagal director won’t be the man wielding the megaphone this time, as sources indicate that he is more likely to stick to the role of the producer. In fact, many say Joy Mathew may be the one at the helm in the Tamil version as well.
The details regarding the cast or crew haven’t been announced yet.
The original Malayalam version starred veterans Lal and Sreenivasan in the lead. The plot revolved around an ill fated return from the Middle East, an auto driver and a prostitute. The nail biting but soulfully rich thriller was well received by the audiences in Kerala.
Joy Mathew is currently rumoured to be working on a new story in which he himself plans to star, opposite none other than the golden girl of Malayalam cinema, Manju Warrier! It is unclear how or if this proposed project would conflict with the other one in any way.
AL Vijay, on the other hand, is a man busy with life and love these days as he just got back from his honeymoon with his new bride Amala in the Maldives, and is beaming with professional pride as his latest venture Saivam has been a success so far and is doing good business at the box office.
