Lijo Jose Pellissery is trying to pull off a casting coup of sorts for his next film, Disco. A whacky entertainer.This could be bracketed in the same genre as the Hollywood flick. The director informs us, Right now, they have confirmed Indrajith, Fahadh Faasil, Sreenath Bhasi, Rajeev Pillai and Shine and are planning to rope in a few more stars for the movie that will be set in Goa. Director Lijo Jose is currently busy giving final touches to his film Amen, starring Fahadh Faasil and Indrajith. The movie will be in theatres by January end.
Mollywood has never really produced any film based on dancers, even when disco dances were on a high in the eighties. The movie will be scripted by debutants Ayyapan and Shehan, with Prasanth Pillai of Shaithan fame scoring the music. The director who has finished filming Amen is in no hurry to release it. The post production work is going on and they are planning a summer release though the shooting got over last month. Scenarist turned actor Shankar Ramakrishnan is gaining popularity as an actor, with his performance in films like Spirit and Bavuttiyude Namathil. The movie, to be shot in Goa, will start rolling in March.
