The film is being produced as a joint venture between Mammootty’s Play House and Lal Creations.
Lal said: “I have acted along with Mammootty in a few movies (Thommanum Makkalum and Best Actor) and even produced a film with him. But this is the first time I am directing him.”
Cobra revolves around the life of two brothers, known as Cobra. Mamta Mohandas and Lakshmi Rai are the likely leading ladies, though it has not been confirmed. Music is by Alex Paul.
Cobra shoot will begin on November 5 in Kochi and the film is expected to hit screens in February 2012.
