Illayathalapathi Vijay who missed the magnum opus "Yohan Adhyayam Ondru" with ace director Gautham Vasudev Menon is all set to tally the loss. Sources inside kollywood say Vijay will join hands with another ace director Ameer for a film titled "Kannapiran". Vijay who is currently on the verge of finishing "Thoopakki" will start his next film with director Vijay post which he will start his film with Ameer. Ameer is also busy with his Jeyam Ravi starrer "Adibhagavan". This is the first time Vijay & Ameer are working together. Isaignani Illayaraja is being approached by Ameer to score the music for the film. If Isaignani says yes, it will also be the first time for Illayaraja & Ameer to work together, since Ameer's film always has Yuvan's music. The hunt for heroine is also underway with Amala Paul leading the race. Randy @ Rathina velu will be the cinematographer while Antony will take care of the editing process. The rest of the crew is yet to be decided. The film is expected to take off in next January and hit theaters by summer of 2013.
