Earlier, following a similar promotional strategy, the makers had also released the first poster of the film which did not mention any name. The film is a remake of a Spanish El Cuerpo.
The Body is a remake of a 2012 Spanish film of the same name. The Hindi version has been written and directed by Jeethu Joseph, marking his Bollywood debut. Jeethu has previously worked on the script of Ajay Devgn and Tabu starrer Drishyam, which was based on his Malayalam movie of the same name. He has also directed films like My Boss, Memories, Aadhi and Mr & Mrs Rowdy. He is currently busy directing an untitled Tamil film featuring Karthi and Jyotika in the lead roles.
The Body, produced by Sunir Kheterpal and Viacom 18 Motion Picture, also stars Sobhita Dhulipala, Emraan’s co-star from Bard of Blood, and Rishi Kapoor. This is the first time Emraan is sharing screen space with the veteran actor. The team completed shooting in July 2018 in around 45 days, in different parts of Mumbai and Mauritius. The film is slated to hit the screens on 13th December 2019
