Reports are doing rounds that Kannada top star Kichcha Sudeep will make his debut in Hollywood with a film titled Risen. According to reports, Sudeep will play the role of an army officer in Risen. These unconfirmed reports suggest that Kichcha Sudeep will join the team of Risen after his current projects. Risen will be directed by Eddie Arya and the pre-production of the film is currently in progress in the US, according to reports.
Touted to be a science-fiction, Risen will have story based on a meteorite attack on a small town in Alaska. The story is said to be based on an incident which happened in Russia many years back. Sudeep has been tight-lipped about this and has not confirmed it yet though. However, reports are suggesting that the actor will fly to the US to meet the makers of Risen after he wraps up the shooting of his current film The Villain, currently being shot in Bangkok.
When this happens, this will definitely make Sudeep a bigger star than what he is today. Sudeep has acted in Bollywood and Telugu films earlier besides mainstream Kannada cinema.
The Villain also stars Shiva Rajkumar, besides Sudeep, and is touted to be one of the most expensive films in the history of Kannada film industry. The Villain is being directed by renowned director Prem and produced by C R Manohar. Shruthi Hariharan has been roped in as the female lead opposite Shiva Rajkumar and the lead opposite Kiccha Sudeep is yet to be zeroed in on.
