Chiyaan Vikram, who is basking in the success of Iru Mugan, seems to be ready for a big project. The actor is likely to star in the Tamil remake of the Hollywood movie, Don't Breathe.

Vikram is said to have started working on the project, and is set to go for a physical transformation again. He will lose loads of weight to look lean in the movie, and has prepared a diet plan. The story will be tweaked to suit the sensibilities of the Tamil audience.

"He will sport a look which is quite different from the ones he maintained in I and Iru Mugan. He will appear a little lean compared to his physique in Iru Mugan, but will come across as a fit and strong person," the Times of India quotes a source as saying.

The movie is likely to be shot either in Ooty or Kodaikanal. Rumours are rife that Anand Shankar of Iru Mugan fame will direct the movie. But he has refused to divulge the details about the film, and said that it is complicated to speak about it at this stage.

Anand Shankar says that he has a couple of ideas in mind and is also working on a fresh script.

Don't Breathe is a horror film, directed by Fede Alvarez and written by Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues. It stars Jane Levy, Dylan Minnette, Daniel Zovatto and Stephen Lang. The story revolves around three delinquents, who get trapped inside a blind man's house.
