We revealed to you exclusively how Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal and Suniel Shetty are all set to kickstart Hera Pheri 3 in November! But why the delay? Well, looks like the film is still without a director! Yes, there have been different reports of Indra Kumar or Priyadarshan being roped in for the movie. However, CineBlitz found out that the makers are yet to finalise on a director.

As a source close to the movie revealed to us exclusively, “All the reports are false. In fact, while rumours suggest that the script is yet to be finalised, it is the opposite. The cast and script have been locked already. The makers are just finalising the director. Neeraj Vora was supposed to direct it, but his untimely death left a large void to be filled. Firoz Nadiadwala didn’t want to rush. He wants a director who can do justice to the film and hence, he is taking his time. Once the director is finalised, which will be announced pretty soon, the movie will go on floors.”

We are sure that Indra Kumar and Priyadarshan are in the running, but who will be chosen? Well, our heart is set on Indra Kumar. After Total Dhamaal‘s success and the fact that he has worked on multiple franchises, we think that he can pull off Hera Pheri 3 well. In fact, the interesting plot that sees Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal and Suniel Shetty’s characters taking a time leap to the present day scenario is interesting. And we would love to see Indra Kumar’s take on it. What do you guys have to say? Share with us your thoughts in the comments section below!

Angel Has Fallen, which is the much-awaited third instalment of the Has Fallen series sees Hollywood heartthrob Gerard Butler reprise his role as Secret Service Agent Mike Banning. Directed by Ric Roman Waugh, the movie also stars Piper Perabo, who is best known for her roles in Cheaper by the Dozen, Cheaper by the Dozen 2, The Prestige, Beverly Hills Chihuahua and Looper.

The action thriller sees Perabo play Mike Banning’s wife Leah Banning. Though she was new to the role, Perabo found that a close-knit, playful rapport with co-star Gerard Butler came organically. She says, “I don’t know if it’s the Scottish in him, but Gerry has such an inviting rough and tumble charm.” She adds, “He’s very good at playing a man who tinges everything with humor, but when things aren’t light with Mike, Leah knows something is about to explode. The relationship felt very real and that made the danger also feel very real.”

Talking about what drew her to the role, Perabo reveals that it was director Waugh’s involvement and says, “I’d seen the documentary Ric made about servicemen trying to reintegrate back into civilian life, so I knew he would bring that vital empathy and understanding to the heart of this movie.”

Along with Piper Perabo and Gerard Butler, the movie also stars Morgan Freeman, Jada Pinkett Smith, Lance Reddick, Tim Blake Nelson, Nick Nolte and Danny Huston. Director Ric Roman Waugh, who is known for his work in Felon, Snitch and Shot Caller is behind the camera for the franchise relaunch. PVR Pictures and MVP Entertainment bring the movie in theaters nationwide on August 23rd.  For more news and updates from the world of showbiz stay tuned to CineBlitz!
