Following the footsteps of Ilaiyaraaja, Ghibran is all set  to go international. The music director, who has a slew of projects, including Aan Dhevathai, Magalir Mattum, Oodi Oodi Uzhaikanum, Adhe Kangal, besides a few in his kitty, has been roped in to compose music for a Hollywood film.

We hear he has given a nod, but is yet to sign the dotted line. On the other hand, rumour mills suggest that the makers were in talks with Arnold Schwarzenegger to play a pivotal role in this venture, but nothing materialised. 

City Express also learnt that 103-year-old Anthony Mithradass, who penned the famous Malayalam film Harishchandra (1955), has written the script for this film. 

“The story will be based on an incident that happened in Belgium during World War I, and the team is currently in talks with a few leading Hollywood technicians and actors. A top director from K’town has been approached to direct the film. The other details will be sorted soon,” sources said.
