Gabriel Marquez’s epic novel “One Hundred Years of Solitude” is finally getting its screen version, all thanks to streaming giant Netflix for adapting it to turn into a series. Interestingly, Gabriel is a renowned author who also won a Nobel Prize for his works in 1982.
The series will be shot in Spanish language and apt subtitles will be provided for non-Spanish viewers. No news related to the payment made by Netflix to purchase the rights has been disclosed but one thing that is sure about the series is that Rodrigo Garcia, son of Gabriel will be the executive producer of the series and the entire series will be shot in the Columbian regions. The cast of the series is yet to be finalised.
In a recent interview, Garcia talked about the project and said: “In the current golden age of series, with the level of talented writing and directing, the cinematic quality of content, and the acceptance by worldwide audiences of programs in foreign languages, the time could not be better to bring an adaptation to the extraordinary global viewership that Netflix provides.”
It is being said that the series will be as par with Netflix’s last Oscar-winning Spanish movie ‘Roma’. The film had won many accolades and big wins at the Oscars. The cinematography of the film was specially applauded as it involved some breath-taking long shots and well-illustrated close-ups as well.
