Thalapathy 67 (tentative title) is an officially unannounced project of actor Vijay’s which he is expected to begin next with director Lokesh Kanagaraj. Touted to be an out and out gangster flick, with Vijay playing a grey-haired, middle-aged Mumbai based don, Thalapathy 67 will also see Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt play one of the main villains.
The movie is a grand-scale multi-starrer with 6 more villains and 2 heroines, and it is expected to go on floors in December this year. Even though the project is still unannounced, updates about it keep surfacing every now and then, and latest is about the release plans of the movie and Kamal Haasan being part of it.
On one hand, it is being said that Thalapathy 67 can be expected to release for Pooja holidays or Diwali next year i.e. in October or November, 2023. On the other, it is being suggested that Lokesh Kanagaraj plans to shoot Thalapathy 67 over a period of 8 months and that he intends to spend 3-4 months in post-production. Given this plan, Thalapathy 67 might release in December, 2023 or early 2024 for all we know.
A production venture of Seven Screen Studio, the movie is expected to reunite Lokesh Kanagaraj with music composer Anirudh, cinematographer Girish Gangadharan, editor Philomin Raj and dialogue writer Rathna Kumar. Another reunion suggested is that of Lokesh Kanagaraj and Kamal Haasan. It remains to be seen if Kamal Haasan appears in a cameo role in Thalapathy 67 or his Raaj Kamal Films International ends up associating on the Vijay starrer.
