Filmmaker attached to Vikas Swarup adaptation.

Screen Daily is reporting that Argentine helmer Pablo Trapero has signed up to direct ‘Six Suspects,’ an India-set crime drama based on the novel of the same name by Indian novelist and diplomat Vikas Swarup.

Marking the Trapero’s first entirely English-language feature, the story revolves around six guests at a party are accused of killing the son of an Indian cabinet minister.

John Hodge (‘The Beach,’ ‘Trainspotting’) is penning adaptation with production lined up for an autumn 2013 start.

Swarup’s first novel, ‘Q&A,’ was used as the basis for Danny Boyle’s multiple Oscar-winning 2008 film ‘Slumdog Millionaire.’
