Scott Free Options “The Fishing Fleet”

Scott Free London has acquired the film rights to Anne de Courcy’s novel “The Fishing Fleet.”

Based on real-life unpublished memoirs, letters and diaries, collected by De Courcy, the story deals with young women in the late 19th and early 20th centuries who travelled to India in search of husbands.

Many British men had left for India to find work as administrators, soldiers and businessman during the years of the Raj.

Liza Marshall will produce and De Courcy will serve as a consultant.
