Mumbai: The release date of John Abraham’s next action thriller ‘Attack’ has been announced and his fans are going crazy to see the hunky playing the role of a lone ranger.
To be directed by debutante filmmaker Lakshya Raj Anand, the movie is based on a true story about a hostage crisis where the ranger leads an attack team during a counter operation.
Lakshya will also write the screenplay of the film, which will go on floors later this month.
Jacqueline Fernandez and Rakul Preet Singh are also part of the cast.
The film is a joint collaboration between John’s JA Entertainment, Pen Studios and Ajay Kapoor’s Kyta Productions.
“‘Attack’ is a taut, interesting thriller with a strong storyline and a genre that I love. That it is releasing on Independence Day makes it even more exciting.
“At JA Entertainment, it is our endeavour to push the envelope and produce films that entertain and have something significant to show to the increasingly discerning audience,” John said in a statement.
The movie is slated to be released on August 14, 2020.
