He will be joining hands with Colin Burrows’ UK-based Special Treats Productions to make the film.
Abhay headlines the cast in the thriller which will be directed by brothers Sunandan and Yugesh Walia, who will also co-produce the film.
“We were going to make the film in English, but we are now considering making it in Hindi,” Burrows says.
Abhay, who is presently in Goa for the ongoing film festival adds, “The work is in progress, I will probably be acting in it. Right now, I am focussing on One By Two which is up for release.”
Incidentally, One By Two has him in the cast along with girlfriend Preeti Desai.
On being asked if Bounty Hunter is a remake of the Hollywood film, the actor clarifies, “It is an Indo-British production and not a remake of the Hollywood movie. It only shares the same name.”
Abhay was last seen on the big screen in Raanjhanaa.
