The 47-year-old is set to play the antagonist in upcoming Indian mafia movie, "The Field," according to Indie Wire.

The movie will mark the directorial debut of Rohit Karn Batra, who stated, "The more the script evolved, the more obvious it became Brendan was the best choice for the idiosyncratic role of Charu. For a director to explore this journey with him in a place like India is nothing less than a once in a lifetime opportunity."

As mentioned by the director, Fraser will be playing a villain named Charu, a gun-runner whose "illicit dealings with the Indian underworld wedges him in the middle of the family implosion."
