Actor-politician Napoleon who ruled the roost in Tamil cinema in the 90s has now bagged his first Hollywood film. Said to be a supernatural-thriller, this film will see Napoleon play the role of a museum curator. Titled Devil’s Night: Dawn Of The Nain Rouge, the film will be directed by Sam Logan Khaleghi, who has an Emmy nomination to his credit. Another Tamil celebrity who will be a part of this project is well-known playback singer Devan Ekambaram. He has been roped in to compose the music for this film, it also features rapper Eminem’s brother Nathan Mathers making his acting debut.
Quizzed by a leading daily on how the experience of working in a Hollywood film, he said “They shoot their films in sync sound. So, there’s not much noise when the shoot is on, which is quite different from the atmosphere on our Indian film sets. Despite having acted in so many films across languages, this is the first time I have shot for a film with live sound, and I faced some difficulty because I needed to get the slang and pronunciation right. The other difference is that they shoot mostly in actual locations.”
Napoleon has currently finished shooting for a Malayalam film titled Aiyappaninda Magan Nachiyappan. He was last seen in the Tamil film Chennaiyil Oru Naal 2.
