Jeffrey Archer comes director hunting to IndiaMay 6th, 2009 - 6:50 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, May 6 (IANS) Jeffrey Archer, king of racy fiction, is coming to India to hunt for a director who could adapt one of his bestsellers into a movie.
Also a playwright and a former politician apart from being an author, Archer, 69, on his tour, will be looking for an “ideal director who could very convincingly and skilfully transform” his “awe-inspiring novels which have gone on to become best sellers into a movie”.
Hailed as a ‘master entertainer’ by Time Magazine, Archer has written acclaimed novels like “Not a Penny More, Not a Penny Less”, “Kane and Abel” and “The Prodigal Daughter” over the last 30 years. He will be in India for the ‘Landmark Jeffrey Archer Tour’ May 11-19.
“I consider myself fortunate to have received so much love and appreciation from my fans all over including India. It is my dream to gift my fans with a movie of their all time favourite novel as a humble reciprocation for all the love that they have showered on me over the years. I hope to come across my ideal director who could help my dream come true during my visit to India later this week,” Archer said in a statement released here Wednesday.
The name of the novel that will be adapted into a movie has, however, not been disclosed yet.
