Song Of The Sun God drama in development
6 part thriller spanning 3 generations of a Sri Lankan family is in development with producers of The Cry.
UK distributor Cineflix Rights has signed a development and financing deal with Sydney-based production company Dragonet Films on a new 6 part series with UK’s Synchronicity Films (The Cry).
6 part series Song Of The Sun God by author Olivia Hetreed (Girl With A Pearl Earring) is described as “a contemporary emotional thriller that explores the loves, lies, and misdemeanours spanning three generations of a close-knit Sri Lankan family, whose story is inextricably entangled in their country’s three-decade-long civil war.”
The novel is set across three generations, beginning in 1948 when the country gained independence, and journeying to the present day. Hetreed’s adaptation will focus on the youngest generation through Leela, a young woman living in London, who is disconnected from her culture and long-held family secrets.
Dragonet principal is producer Karen Radzyner whose credits include Paper Giants: The Birth of Cleo and Two Twisted.
