Actor Randeep Hooda is all set to play a character modeled around the iconic character of cold blooded Anton Chigurh (played by Javier Bardem) from NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, for his forthcoming film JOHN DAY, which is an edge of the set revenge drama.
Randeep plays a violent, cold and menacing character with a dark sense of humor much like that of Javier's in NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN.
When asked the debutant director Solomon, he says, ''Well yes Randeep's character is modeled around Javier Bardem's character NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN but the similarity ends here. In fact my character is much more complex, just think of Anton Chigurh with an intense love story. Randeep's character is extremely violent, heartless and very aggressive. I was extremely excited while writing the script, and the character and Javier was on my mind. But the film has nothing to do with NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN.''

Produced by Anjum Rizvi (producer of A WEDNESDAY) and K. Asif, the film has an ensemble cast with Randeep Hooda, Naseeruddin Shah, Shernaz Patel, Salim Ghouse and Vipin Sharma playing important characters in the film.
JOHN DAY is slated to go on floors in May this year.
