Director Sujeeth, basking under the success of his hit debut film Run Raja Run, will cast actor Prabhas Varma in his yet-untitled action thriller in Telugu.
Sujeeth's directorial debut was a runaway success last year.
"Sujeeth will direct Prabhas in his next film. The regular shooting is expected to start from June. So far only Prabhas has been finalised for the project," said a source close to Sujeeth.
The young director is on the lookout for a "new heroine".
UV Creations, the producers of Run Raja Run, will also produce this film on a high budget.
"Prabhas is busy wrapping up Baahubali, and as soon as he's done with it, he'll start shooting for this project," the source said.
Madhie has been roped in as the cinematographer, while the rest of the cast will be finalised soon.
