About L2: Empuraan Movie:

L2: Empuraan (stylised as E.M.P.U.R.A.A.N), also called L2E, is an upcoming Indian Malayalam-language action thriller film directed by Prithviraj Sukumaran and written by Murali Gopy. It is the second instalment in a planned trilogy, following the 2019 film Lucifer. The film is jointly produced by Lyca Productions and Aashirvad Cinemas. It stars Mohanlal as Khureshi-Ab’raam / Stephen Nedumpally, reprising his role from the original, alongside Prithviraj, Manju Warrier, and Tovino Thomas in the recurring cast. The film’s music was composed by Deepak Dev.

When asked about the possibility of a sequel, Murali Gopy told to International Business Times on a 4 April 2019 interview that “Lucifer is definitely designed as a franchise, and it is very evident from its structure and progression that it is one. I will abstain myself here from giving you any further leads”.

In the same month, when asked about any prequel or sequel plans, Murali told to The Hindu: “It has been made evident on screen that the film is modeled as a franchise platform. There are sumptuous dramatic clues and hideaways throughout the film, which hint at continuity”.

On a May 2019 interview to The Times of India, Prithviraj Sukumaran said that he has not decided on directing a sequel because of the time he needs to find for the film in between his busy acting schedules. At the same time, he said: “Lucifer was never written as a one-film story. From the time Murali and I started talking about the story, we knew it wasn’t something that would end in a single film. In fact, I was quite tempted to do an 11-episode web series because the story is that spread out. We have sort of just picked one area with a few characters of a saga”.

On 18 June 2019, a follow-up to the film titled L2: Empuraan was officially announced by Prithviraj, Mohanlal, Murali and Antony at a press conference held at Kochi.

The film was set to begin production in the second half of 2020 but was put on hold indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to Prithviraj, “Empuraan” means “more than a King and less than a god” and the literal meaning would be “overlord”. He said Empuraan will not be a continuation of the story seen in Lucifer, but will explain what happened before and after Lucifer. He also revealed that Zayed Masood’s role in Stephen’s and Khureshi’s life is not as small as what seen in Lucifer.

In November 2022, while the film was in pre-production, Prithviraj stated that they have not decided on a release date for the film. Beside Malayalam, the film would be released in Hindi, Kannada, Tamil, and Telugu languages. The film is also marketed with the short title L2E by the makers.
