From Bollywood to Hollywood: film in the offing of Vikram Chandra’s SACRED GAMES

The website “The Hollywood Reporter”, (13 October 2011) reports:

that a film is being made of Vikram Chandra’s epic novel of Bombay/Mumbai from 2006, Sacred Games (several times referred to on this blog):

“Sacred Games (…) is based on the India-set novel of the same name by Vikram Chandra. It revolves around the spidery links between organized crime, local politics and Indian espionage that lie below the surfaces of its economic renaissance. Feature scribe Kerry Williamson (Alexander Payne’s upcoming Fork in the Road) is attached to write and executive produce the project.”

I add that this project seems particularly appropriate, since one of the novel’s most memorable episodes features gangster Ganesh Gaitonde involving himself in the making of a Bollywood film. -even if we will now have Bollywood transplanted toHollywood!
