simon beaufoyIts official. Simon Beaufoy has confirmed the news to Daily Telegraph. You can read more about it  here. He is all set to write the next film for Danny Boyle. Its the Slumdog Millionaire team again.

And its an adaptation of Suketu Mehta’s book Maximum City : Bombay Lost & Found. Remember we told you first! Here is the post.

Danny boyle has bought the rights of the book. But the big problem is Maximum City is a non-fiction work. So Beaufoy’s job is to find a story in it first! Mehta’s book is  a collage of essays, travelogue and journalistic account.

Simon Beaufoy is in talks with Mehta regarding the adaptation as he needs lot of creative liberties to make this non-fiction account into a fictional one.
