Hrithik Roshan, who is busy shooting for Ashutosh Gowariker's "Mohenjo Daro", has bagged yet another project.

Roshan has teamed up with producer Sajid Nadiadwala for a Hollywood remake, which will be helmed by "Haider" director Vishal Bharadwaj.

According to a report in Absolute India, the "Krrish 3" star will reprise the role of Leonardo di Caprio in the official remake of Oscar winning flick, "The Departed" (2006).

For the past few years, both Bharadwaj and Roshan has been in talks to work on the project, however, things got delayed due to their previous commitments.

"Vishal and Hrithik have been trying to get together for a film since quite some time now," a source told the daily. "In 2009, it was announced that Hrithik would be doing Vishal's film and even Aishwarya Rai's name was in contention for it. However, after that in 2010 there was news doing the rounds that Hrithik would step in the shoes of Leonardo Di Caprio for the official remake of The Departed, which Vishal was to direct. However, now all things have fallen in place and Vishal will indeed do the film. Everything about the film has been kept under wraps."

No official announcements have been made regarding the same, but reports have been doing the rounds that the honey-eyed actor has signed the dotted line.

And if reports are anything to go by, then with the ace actor-director duo teaming up for the first time, no doubt that the film will turn out to be a Bollywood blockbuster.

The untitled project is expected to go on floors in October this year, soon after Roshan wraps up the mega-budget film, "Mohenjo Daro".

This is not the first Hollywood remake that Roshan has worked in. Last year, the actor with Greek-god looks starred in Siddharth Anand's blockbuster "Bang Bang", which was the official remake of the Hollywood flick "Knight and Day" starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz.
