Thalapathy Vijay’s blockbuster Tamil film Theri will be remade in Telugu with Ravi Teja. Mythri Movie Makers, producers of Rangasthalam will be bankrolling the film. Catherine Tresa will be playing Amy Jackson’s role in the film but the team hasn’t finalized the other actors.
Theri was also dubbed in Telugu as Policeodu but it failed to become a box office success. Santhosh Srinivas of Kandireega fame will be directing the Telugu remake of Theri. Once Ravi Teja completes the shoot of Amar Akbar Anthony with Srinu Vaitla, the actor will start shooting for the Theri remake.
Directed by Atlee, Theri grossed more than 150cr and it was a comeback film for Vijay after the box office dud ‘Puli’.
