Dhanush, who is currently busy with Arun Matheswaran's Captain Miller, has signed his next project with Sun Pictures. The actor made the announcement on his social media handle, along with a picture of a small town from where smoke is seen emanating. The poster says that the updates from the film, which is tentatively being referred to as D50, will be out soon. As the title suggests, this is Dhanush's 50th film and is touted to be a gangster drama. We hear that SJ Suryah and Vishnu Vishal are likely to be part of the film as well.​

In the meantime, the shoot for Captain Miller is going in full swing. The film has Kannada Superstar Shiva Rajkumar playing a crucial role and Priyanka Mohan as the leading lady, marking both the actors' maiden collaboration with Dhanush. The rest of the star cast includes Sundeep Kishan and John Kokken to name a few. Music is by GV Prakash Kumar. Cinematography is by Shreyaas Krishna and editing is by Nagooran.

Sun Pictures is currently producing Superstar Rajinikanth's next Jailer, which is helmed by Nelson Dilipkumar. The star cast for the film includes Shiva Rajkumar (marking his Tamil debut), Ramya Krishnan, Yogi Babu, Vinayakan, Vasanth Ravi to name a few.
