Los Angeles, Oct 17 (IANS) Jacques Audiard-directed movie “A Prophet” is being made into a TV series by producer Marco Cherqui.
Cherqui has teamed up with Why Not Productions’ founder Pascal Caucheteux’s to adapt the 2009 released crime film, reported variety.com.
“The series will neither be a prequel nor a sequel but rather a reboot. The series will be different from the film in the same way that Matteo Garrone’s movie ‘Gomorrah’ was different from its TV adaptation,” said Cherqui.
The “Prophet” TV series is being penned by Abdel Raouf Dafri, the screenwriter of the International Emmy Award-winning “Braquo” in collaboration with Nicolas Peufaillit.
The series will follow the trajectory of a young Arab man from an underprivileged suburb who ends up behind bars and becomes a different man. Actor Tahar Rahim played the leading role in Audiard’s movie and delivered a breakthrough performance.
