The Rights to Graham Greene’s The Captain and the Enemy have been acquired by Bad Penny Productions

The rights to the final novel published by Graham Greene have been acquired by Bad Penny Productions.

The Captain and the Enemy will be adapted for the screen by novelist and screenwriter, William Boyd. Mad To Be Normal producer, Phin Glynn, will produce.

About the novel, Boyd said, ‘I have always found The Captain And The Enemy a haunting read. A book with a very strong, understated, love story at its heart. I believe its strangeness and fractured nature make it ripe for a film adaptation.’

The Greene Estate is represented by David Higham Associates.
