Most of you will have seen the movie of my time in Iraq when I was forced to become the fidai (bullet-catcher) of Uday Saddam Hussein. That movie was based on my first book, 'The Devil's Double'.
Whilst that movie was very popular on it's release all over the world, my memories of it are tainted by arguments with the producers over the way my story was told.
After a legal dispute, I now own all the film rights. Not only for that first book but also for my second entitled 'The Black Hole' which continues my life-story after I left Iraq. It has been described as a true-life Jason Bourne 'cat and mouse' adventure through Europe as I struggled to find a peaceful life and avoid pressures and threats from Uday, the CIA and European secret services.
A screenplay has been written which is very true to the book provisionally called 'The Devil's Revenge'. But I do not want the story altered by producers or influenced by government agencies. I have therefore decided to try and produce the film by myself.
Millions of people around the world enjoyed 'The Devil's Double' and, if you would like to see a sequel then this is your chance to help make it happen.
Many projects are now 'crowd-funded' and I ask if you could donate 10 euros (or more if you can afford it) to help get this project into production.
If you can help, you will be kept informed of progress and your name will be included in the credits.
This is an exciting opportunity for me and, I hope, for you. It will result in a movie that will make the world sit up and take note of how international politics and governments work and how badly they treat individuals.
I thank you.
