"The film will be produced by Steven Spielberg and directed by Colin Trevorrow. The first schedule of the film will be shot in Hawaii and I will stay in the US for whole of May," Irrfan told PTI, before leaving for the US.
The 47-year-old actor, however, did not divulge much details about his role or the film.
"I play the role of the owner of a park. The film is expected to hit theatres by this year end," he said.
Irrfan has been part of several international projects including 'The Amazing Spider-Man', 'Slumdog Millionaire', 'A Mighty Heart' among others. Recently, he was adjudged the best actor for his role in 'The Lunchbox' at the Dubai
International Film Festival.
"So far I have no regrets about the films that I have worked in. I am very careful about choosing my projects and there are several aspects that I keep in mind - the story, my character in the film and also whether I will be able to discover something new with it," Irrfan said.
The actor, who won the National award for his role in 'Paan Singh Tomar', says previously Indian films at international festivals had limited audience. But it all
changed after Ritesh Batra's world class movie 'The Lunchbox', which was highly appreciated by the international audience.
"This is a very good news for Indian cinema. Even a film that was based on Indian sensibilities found world-wide recognition," he said.
Irrfan will also be sharing screen space with megastar Amitabh Bachchan in Shoojit Sircar's 'Piku'.
