Working Title Adapting Glenny’s “McMafia”

Working Title has picked up film rights to Mischa Glenny’s organized crime-themed novel “McMafia” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Glenny, an expert on global affairs, focuses on the network of mob criminals in places as diverse as Mumbai, Johannesburg and Eastern Europe.

These players, he writes, operate illegal businesses ranging from drug smuggling to human trafficking, in operations that equal roughly one-fifth of the world’s economy.
