Joy Mathew is now writing his next, which will have Mammootty in the lead role. The movie will be directed by Gireesh Damodar, who has worked as an associate director to Ranjith, Padmakumar etc. "The film has been titled Uncle, and will revolve around a family, like Shutter," says Gireesh. "The social and political milieu of Kerala is of much importance in the movie and it's about an unusual situation a family is made to face. Mammootty will be seen in a different role altogether."
On scripting the movie, Joy Mathew says, "It was originally a small subject but it developed over time. With Mammootty coming on board, it will be a full-fledged project. I can't reveal the subject but it's a socially relevant one, and very strong. Think of a 17-year-old girl and her dad's friend, uncle.
