Thalapathy Vijay’s Theri which released in April 2016 became a blockbuster hit at the box office. Now the Tamil film will be remade in Telugu with star hero Ravi Teja. Mythri Movie Makers who recently bankrolled Rangasthalam will be producing this film. Catherine Tresa will be playing Amy Jackson's role in the film but the team hasn’t finalized the other actors. Once Ravi Teja completes the shoot of Amar Akbar Anthony with Srinu Vaitla, the actor will start shooting for the Theri remake. Theri was also dubbed in Telugu as Police (earlier it was Policeodu) but it failed to become a box office success. Santhosh Srinivas of Kandireega fame will be directing the Telugu remake of Theri.
