Director Jeethu Joseph will direct the Tamil version of Drishyam, produced under the banner of Suresh Balaji and George Pious`s Wide Angle Creations, with Kamal Haasan playing the lead. The shooting of the film has been scheduled to start during June this year.
Jeethu Joseph said: "We just signed the film and I am back in Kochi after meeting Kamal Haasan. The shoot will start in the second half of the year and the rest of the cast and other details are being worked out."
Drishyam has been a phenomenal success and is regarded as the highest grosser in Malayalam ever. The Telugu version of the film is being made with Venkatesh in the lead.
Jeethu had the option of directing the Tamil and Hindi versions. The talks on the Hindi remake are on and sources inform that there have been some discussions already with a few prominent Bollywood stars.
