Amuta to adapt Emodi novel Swindle
Nigerian filmmaker James Amuta (Nightfall in Lagos, Collision Course) is adapting Swindle, a novel by Zuby Emodi, as a film.
Published last year, Swindle tells a story about scams in the banking industry, switching between the past and the present.
Amuta said: “Screen adaptation loading! This amazing novel by my friend and brother Zuby Emodi has totally captivated me. It presents a new challenge and an exciting journey into a world I’ve always wanted to make a film about.
“It reminds me of a screenplay I’d written. And the prospect of turning these pages into pictures is something I’ve become passionately committed to. Congratulations Zuby Emodi for this amazing novel. I can totally visualise it.”
Further details of the production have yet to be revealed.
