Being presented by TG Thyagaran and produced by Sendhil Thyagaran and Arjun Thyagaran, the first ever mention of Captain Miller was revealed back in April this year at the Dakshin South India Media & Entertainment Summit. "We are currently working on pre-production for our next magnum opus titled Captain Miller which will be a pan-India release for Mr. Dhanush. The film is directed by Arun Matheswaran. Set in the 1930s, Captain Miller is a big action-adventure," an official quote from a booklet stated the following. Apart from the star-studded cast, Captain Miller includes a strong technical team featuring the likes of chart-buster composer G. V. Prakash Kumar for the music, Shreyaas Krishna and Nagooran for the cinematography and editing, respectively, while Tha. Ramalingam is the art director, followed by Dhilip Subbarayan handling the action choreography, with costume designs being done by Poornima Ramaswamy and Kavya Sriram, and the lyrics penned by Madhan Karky.
