Vijay with AR Murugadoss
PR Handout

Sun Pictures, which has not been actively producing movies for over five years now, will be back into the business soon. Well, it is getting ready to bankroll Ilayathalapathy's 62nd film to be directed by AR Murugadoss.

Rumours are rife that AR Murugadoss is joining hands with Vijay for yet another commercial entertainer. The movie will begin once the actor wraps up his upcoming flick Mersal, written and directed by Atlee Kumar.

A formal announcement on the project is likely to be made in July and the shooting will reportedly commence in October. The cast and crew along with other details will be revealed in the months to come.

AR Murugadoss had earlier worked with Vijay for two blockbusters like Thuppakki and Kaththi.

Coming to Sun Pictures, it is owned by politician Kalanidhii Maran. Ever since their DMK lost power, the production studio has kept itself away from producing movies.
