MUMBAI: UTV Motion Pictures has launched its first super hero project in Tamil, Mugamoodi, which will be written and directed by Mysskin, and stars Jiiva of Ko fame and Narain of Anjathey fame, in lead roles.
The technicians, heroine and artistes for other lead roles are currently being finalized. This will be the first ever Tamil movie to be made focusing on extensive martial arts, and promises to be an action packed entertainer and a treat for kids and families alike.
Mysskin and Jiiva, two bright talents from the Tamil film industry, will come together for the first time in this project. Narain will play a role he has never been seen in before. Both actors Jiiva and Narain will undergo special martial arts training with experts flown in from the Shaolin Temple of Martial Arts in China. An extensive hunt for the heroine of the film is now underway.
The story is based on the theme of the superhero that lies dormant in every one of us. Destiny pushes a love struck young man into a dangerous world of adventure. How he fights the evil incarnate and becomes the savior of society is what Mugamoodi is about.
The pre-production on the project is already in progress, including scouting for the appropriate technical team to work on the film and exotic locales overseas to film the songs. Consultants from IIT will be designing hi-end gadgets to be used in the movie and the superhero costumes will be created by select teams from NIFT.
Principal photography is scheduled to commence in September 2011. The film will have a summer release in 2012.
