After “Department”, Ram Gopal Varma is planning another project, inspired by Steven Spielberg’s “Munich”, with Sanjay Dutt and says the actor is “our last action hero” and that he wants to “cast him as a one-man army on a global mission”.
The role model for the film is Eric Bana in “Munich” and Sanjay will pump up the iron to get into a sinewy shape to shoot for the espionage thriller.
Confirming the ambitious Rs.90 crore project, Varma said: “Yes, Sanjay Dutt and I are doing another film right after ‘Department’. I truly believe he is our last action hero. So I am going to cast him as a one-man army on a global mission. ‘Munich’ is the film I’ve in mind.”
“But it would be not just a cerebral thriller. I want Sanjay Dutt doing a lot of daring action. You see, in ‘Department’, he plays a plain clothed cop who has to blend with the crowds. So there’s little room for heroics. I want to pump up the action level dangerously in our next film. So it would be ‘Munich’ meets ‘Rambo’.”
Sanjay seems very excited about the film.
“Yes, Ramu and I have discussed the project we’re doing next. It’s very exciting.”
The film will go on the floors later this year.
