Official: Thalapathy 64 to be directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj of Maanagram fame
To everyone’s surprise, Vijay’s next film’s announcement poster was officially released yesterday. Tentatively titled as Thalapathy 64 will be Vijay’s next film after Bigil which will be directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj of Maanagram fame.
Lokesh is young exciting talent and this is a huge opportunity for him to direct Thalapathy Vijay. This is a riveting combination for Vijay who is in top form at the box-office. This is a completely new attempt for the actor and it will be a genre-centric film.
The officially released poster shows a man sporting a hoodie walking afar in an alley. We can infer that the mystery man is none other than Vijay and it looks like the theme of the film will be a dark one, in contrast to other recent films of Vijay.
Sathyan Sooryan is handling the cinematography, while the editing responsibilities go to Philomin Raj, The stunt direction and the art direction are by ‘Stunt’ Silva and Satheesh Kumar, respectively. The rest of the cast and crew are yet to be finalised. Vijay's upcoming release Bigil, directed by Atlee, will hit the screens during Diwali weekend.
