Finally after vacillating for months Vikram has finally made up his mind about his next film after Anniyan! He has decided to do a remake of that Malayalam super hit Mammootty film Thommanum Makkalum for producer Rockline Venkatesh.

Thommanum Makkalum is an action comedy about the bonding between a loving father and his two sons who are all thieves! In the Malayalam version Rajan P.Dev played the father which will now be played in Tamil by Manivannan.

Vikram will play the character that Mammootty played in the original while Pasupathy is likely to do the other son’s role. Vikram told "I chose the subject as it is an all out racy entertainer with action, comedy and humour in the right proportion. I am doing this film for my fans who want a film in this genre”.

This Vikram starrer will be directed by Shafi who did the original and the heroine will either be Trisha or Asin depending on their dates. The music director will be Vidyasagar. The shooting will commence in the first week of June and will be Vikram’s Diwali release.
