British actor Dev Patel, of Slumdog Millionaire and Lion fame, is now planning to try his hand at film directing too.

Variety Magazine reports that he is pitching a new 'revenge thriller' called Monkey Man, which is planning to begin filming in Mumbai in spring 2019.

But he's not saying much about the plot yet. The press release says Monkey Man is based around a man who emerges from prison to grapple with a world marred by "corporate greed and eroding spiritual values".

It will be set in modern-day India and deal with Indian mythology.
