Trapero To Direct “Six Suspects”

Argentine filmmaker Pablo Trapero (“Carancho,” “Lion’s Den”) is attached to helm the India-set crime drama “Six Suspects” at Working Title-Starfield Productions and BBC Films.

Trapero’s first English-language feature, the story is based on Vikas Swarup’s novel which screenwriter John Hodge (“The Beach,” “Trainspotting”) is adapting.

The story revolves around six guests at a party who are accused of killing the son of an Indian cabinet minister.

Paul Raphael will produce with shooting aiming to get underway next Fall. Swarup’s novel “Q&A” was the basis for Danny Boyle’s Oscar-winning “Slumdog Millionaire”.
