One of the directors of the famous House of Cards series John Davis Coles is going to start working on a project on the events of the October Revolution, RIA Novosti reports. Coles previously directed and produced two episodes of House of Cards.
The director plans to begin the production of the Emerald Eye series. The series will become a film adaptation of Sam Eastland’s books. His seven works are united by the main character. Inspector Arno Pekkala, known as Emerald Eye, is a detective of Nicholas II, the last Russian emperor. The plot unfolds against the backdrop of the 1917 revolution in Russia.
The books about Pekkala are translated into more than two dozen languages and sold in more than million copies. The emperor’s undercover agent is sent to his motherland - Finland. He must follow the activities of an underground revolutionary cell.
British screenwriter Tom Williams, who will be working on the series, said that the revolution will become a prism for the study of modernity. It combines three important aspects at once: a thriller, character development, visual effects, he added.
