Chinua Achebe's African Trilogy Adapted For The Screen "Things Fall Apart" by Raphael005: 4:28am On May 19
It’s the best literary news you’ll hear today.

In what appears to be a long overdue development and expectations for movie adaptation, Chinua Achebe’s African trilogy—the novels; "Things Fall Apart", "No Longer at Ease" and "Arrow of God"—are being adapted for the screen, according to a statement released by Achebe’s family.

The Achebe family is teaming up with Dayo Ogunyemi of 234 Media, Joe Seldner of Seldner Media, and a few others to bring Chinua Achebe‘s African Trilogy, “Things Fall Apart,” “No Longer at Ease,” and “Arrow of God,” to the world through a television production.

The project according to the update given by Bella Naija, is currently in development. However, no release date has been announced for the movies.

“Things Fall Apart”, his best-seller, depicts a society caught between its traditional roots and the demands of a constantly transforming world. The book features Okonkwo, an influential member of the Igbo people as he struggles to adapt as his village is colonized by the British.

In futherance to the above, his grandson, Obi Okonkwo, was introduced in “No Longer at Ease,” a young man who was sent to a university in England and has returned, only to clash with the ruling elite to whom he now believes he belongs. The story of Ezuelu, the chief priest of many Nigerian villages, and his war with Christian missionaries is told in “Arrow of God.”

The chairman and CEO of AIDE, African Integrated Development Enterprise, Chidi Chike Achebe, who is the late novelist’s son, shared on his LinkedIn page that “Things Fall Apart – Achebe’s magnum opus – and other novels of the African Trilogy – No Longer at Ease and Arrow of God – to be adapted for global television audiences
