Child Kidnapped by Teacher
Following the success of A KIDNAPPING on Radio 4, Steve Coogan’s production company - Baby Cow - has bought the film-script, with a view to shooting in Spring 2016. The story’s the same: two teachers working at a top international school in the Philippines decide to do the unthinkable...
They’ve noticed they’re surrounded by some of the wealthiest children in Asia – why not take advantage and kidnap one? – an easy way to make a fortune. Unfortunately, they choose the child of one Manila’s most dangerous senators, and the plan goes badly, horribly, dangerously wrong. The script was adapted for the screen by Andy and John Dryden (celebrated for his unique radio drama), and they continue to closely with Baby Cow as the project moves forward.
