The Seven Sins on the Big Screen


Producers Moritz Borman and Peter Graves have licensed film rights to the novel “The Seven Sins: The Tyrant Ascending” from Las Vegas entrepreneur Fabrizio Boccardi’s King Midas World Entertainment, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Jon Land’s action thriller, published last month by Tom Doherty Associates’ Forge imprint, centers on a Las Vegas casino owner, Michael “The Tyrant” Tiranno, the adopted son of an Italian crime lord who is called upon to defend the gambling mecca from terrorist attacks.

Land has said that the character is loosely inspired by Boccardi’s life story and is designed as the first of a series of James Bond-like adventure tales.

Borman would produce, with Graves serving as executive producer.
