E4 Entertainment to make a web series based on Chasing The Brigand
E4 Entertainment, a popular banner in the South Indian film industry, is set to make their maiden web series. It will be based on the book ‘Chasing The Brigand’, written by K Vijaya Kumar IPS. He was the Chief of the Special Task Force (STF) of Tamil Nadu that was involved in the killing of India’s most dreaded bandit, Veerappan, during Operation Cocoon of 2004.
‘Chasing The Brigand’ written by K Vijay Kumar IPS is an incisive account of the rise and fall of Veerappan. E4 Entertainment has acquired the book’s rights. In a press statement released by them, it has been mentioned that any feature film or web series replicating the book, its episodes in part or as a whole or any characters in the book or their mannerisms depicted as in the book is liable for damages and legal action for copyright infringement. They are planning to start works immediately after the restrictions on outdoor shooting is shifted.
‘Chasing the Brigand’ is the most authentic account of how the STF planned and executed Veerappan. The book also relives the various incidents that shaped his life. It traces his dramatic rise from a small-time poacher and sandalwood smuggler to a brutal fugitive who held three states to ransom for two decades.
Details regarding the cast and crew behind the web series is not yet known. Stay tuned.
