Zimbabwean writer and filmmaker Tsitsi Dangarembga has optioned film rights to journalist and TV anchor Imran Garda’s gripping debut novel The Thunder That Roars.
According a release she will supervise the adaptation and production of the film as creative producer.
Dangarebga is the CEO of Nyeri Films.
The film deal was brokered by Aoife Lennon-Ritchie at the Lennon-Ritchie Agency.
The move is an endorsement of a talent who we believe with better resources would have taken the continent by storm through her vision and work ethic.
All the best and we can’t wait to see the final product.
