Ronnie Screwvalas RSVP in collaboration with Global One Studios acquires the rights to the book “Five Past Midnight in Bhopal”

The Indian media mogul Ronnie Screwvala has given the audiovisual rights to the outstanding authors Dominique Lapierre and Javier Moro’s excellently researched and written book “Five past midnight in Bhopal: The epic story of the deadliest industrial disaster in the world”.

In 1984, in the ancient city of Bhopal, a cloud of toxic gas escaped from an American pesticide factory, killing and injuring thousands of people – the Bhopal tragedy. In “Five Past Midnight in Bhopal”, Lapierre and Moro weave hundreds of characters, eyewitness accounts and adventures into an exciting human tapestry. It’s an epic of ambition and bravery, faith and hope, disaster and consistency – as tingling as the Titanic, as harrowing as The Perfect Storm, and as relevant as the latest headline.

Ronnie said, “A breathtaking story, told convincingly … this story needs to be adapted for the screen, with the importance and size of Chernobyl. A series that will keep you on the edge of your seat, touch your heart, provoke your anger and compassion. It will challenge the resolve and implementation of international politics while celebrating the spirit of human endeavor against all odds. There is no better time to tell this story. “
