CHENNAI: Dhanush-Arun Matheswaran’s period film Captain Miller was officially announced in the first week of July. Produced by Sathya Jyothi, the project has GV Prakash as the music composer and cinematography by Shreyaas Krishna. The latest update we hear about the film is that it will start rolling in the second week of September. “Captain Miller will go on floors in Rameswaram where Arun had previously filmed Rocky and Saani Kaayidham. Dhanush, who is basking in the success of Thiruchitrambalam will travel to Mumbai and later focus on the audio launch of Naane Varuven on September 9. Post the weekend, the actor will leave for the shoot of Captain Miller. The movie will be shot for 120 days across lengthy schedules. Priyanka Mohan plays the female lead,” a source in the know told DT Next.
Earlier in an interview, Arun Matheswaran told us, “We will be recreating the 1930s and this is also the biggest film for me in terms of budget. I like the name Captain Miller after Tom Hanks’s character name from Saving Private Ryan.”
