Director Nishikanth Kamath, who is all set to start a new film for another production house, says he would love to direct Force 2 but has no subject in mind.

"I'm in the US right now. I am directing a psychological thriller for Love

. Force 2 I would like to do but I've no subject," said Kamat.

Love Action Comedy is helmed by Amir Chandrra and Sanjay Routray and Kamath was apparently committed to make a film for the production company even before Force was released.

After the success of John Abraham starrer Force, Vipul Shah is keen to quickly start the sequel and wants Kamath to direct it.

"Nishi has never repeated himself. All his films in Marathi and now Hindi are different genres. You can't compare Nishi's Mumbai Meri Jaan with his Force. He's now writing an out-and-out thriller with lots of special effects. And he wants John in it," said a source.

John, who has always supported unconventional directors (Anurag Kashyap in No Smoking, Nagesh Kukunoor in Aashayein), is torn between the will to be part of a successful franchise and the desire to go with his friend Kamath's creative vision.

"It's a tricky turf for John. Vipul cannot make Force 2 without John. Nishikant wrote his new film with John in mind," said the source.
