Beast is an upcoming Indian Tamil-language black comedy action-thriller film written and directed by Nelson and produced by Sun Pictures. The film stars Vijay and Pooja Hegde while Selvaraghavan and Yogi Babu appear in supporting roles. The production rights of Vijay's 65th film as lead actor, which was tentatively titled Thalapathy 65, were acquired by Sun Pictures in early January 2020, and the film was set to be written and directed by AR Murugadoss. However, the producers ousted Murugadoss from the film in October 2020, after he refused to cut his renumeration. Nelson was later hired, and wrote a new script for the film.
