The latest Apple TV+ project has nabbed Charlie Hunnam to lead the cast. According to Variety, the series ”Shantaram” will be based on the novel by Gregory David Roberts of the same name.

Apple reportedly acquired the rights to the novel back in June 2018 after a bidding war with other streaming services. The novel focuses on a convict named Lin who escapes from an Australian prison and flees to the city of Bombay. Once there, Lin gets trapped in the seedy underworld while still being pursued by his previous life back in the prison.
