On the no-brainer development fast track now is the second film to be based on a novel by Vikas Swarup, the guy who penned Q&A. That one was the novel adapted into Danny Boyle‘s outrageously popular Slumdog Millionaire.
According to Screen Daily, Six Suspects is to be a $15 million budget whodunit set in Delhi. Set to be scripted by John Hodge, screenwriter of not one but two other Danny Boyle-helmed films (Trainspotting, Shallow Grave) the project is being described as “Agatha Christie meets Elmore Leonard” and, if it’s anything like Slumdog, the film will dive into Delhi’s criminal underbelly known for its contract killings and rampant fraud.
