A surprise announcement was made by Deepa Mehta at the Cannes Film Festival a few days back.

John Abraham was in Cannes to promote his forthcoming film Goal along with girlfriend Bipasha Basu and UTV's Ronnie Screwvala. While Bips came back to Mumbai after just half a day's stay in Cannes, John stayed there for long.



During his stay at Cannes, he met filmmaker Deepa Mehta who, to everyone's surprise, announced her next movie 'Luna'.

A Hollywood venture, 'Luna' is based on the American environmentalist Julia Hill, who lived in a small shelter atop a 180-foot-tall tree in California Redwood Forest for 738 days to protest against the felling of trees in the region. Hill named the tree on which she lived 'Luna', which is the title of Deepa Mehta's movie.

The film will have Hollywood actress Rachel Weisz in the role of Julia Hill. John will play an activist. Interestingly, the film will not reveal anything about John's nationality.

At Cannes, John also got to meet Julia Hill, who had come with Mehta. John says he was expecting a mature and serious woman. But in Julia he saw a young, feisty and passionate girl.

Although John hasn't met Rachel Weisz yet, he is an admirer of her acting skills.

Besides 'Luna', John will also work with Deepa Mehta in her ambitious movie Exclusion which will have Amitabh Bachchan playing a Sikh.
