Makers of Sachin: A Billion Dreams to adapt Brewster's Millions
Superstar Rajinikanth's 1997 film Arunachalam was loosely based on the novel
200 Not Out Cinemas Pvt Ltd, the makers of Sachin: A Billion Dreams, is set to make a film on the book Brewster's Millions by George Barr McCutcheon.
The novel revolves around Montgomery Brewster, a young man who inherits a million dollars from his rich grandfather. Shortly after, his rich uncle dies and leaves Brewster seven million dollars for him under the condition that he keeps none of the money inherited from his grandfather. So, Brewster is forced to spend every penny of his grandfather's inheritance within one year. If he meets these terms, he will gain the full seven million dollars; if he fails, he will be left penniless.
"We are happy to announce that we are making a film on Brewster's Millions. I am a big fan of comedies. There have been a few adaptations of this book worldwide. We have a modern take on the timeless classic and I am extremely happy with the way the story has turned out," said Ravi Bhagchandka, the film's producer and founder of 200 Not Out Cinemas Pvt. Ltd., in a statement.
"It is going to be a laugh riot and we are hoping to attach some big names to the cast of the film soon," he added.
