Filmmaker Ramin Bahrani is sticking with Netflix for his next project. The White Tiger director will be helming the streamer’s adaptation of Amnesty.
According to Variety, Ramin Bahrani’s follow up to The White Tiger will find the filmmaker bringing yet another adaptation to life at Netflix.
Specifically, Bahrani will be serving as writer, director, and producer on Netflix’s forthcoming adaptation of Amnesty.
The director’s next feature film also marks a reunion between him and The White Tiger author Aravind Adiga.
Based on Adiga’s 2020 novel of the same name, Amnesty focuses on an undocumented immigrant named Danny who works cleaning houses. Things in Danny’s life get complicated when he suddenly realizes he’s got information about the murder of one of his employers. From there, we see him grapple with a moral conundrum, because if he tells the authorities what he knows, Danny runs the risk of getting deported.
Adiga will serve as an executive producer along with Bahrani on Netflix’s Amnesty adaptation.
In a statement announcing his involvement with the project, Ramin Bahrani said: “I am thrilled to adapt Aravind’s great new novel, Amnesty. And very grateful to partner with Netflix and my lead creative producer Bahareh Azimi once again. This novel gripped me from the first time Aravind shared a rough draft with me five years ago. I can’t wait to bring it to the screen.”
Currently, there’s no word on when we can expect to see Amnesty debut. The White Tiger is streaming now on Netflix.
