Victor Pelevin (Source:

Victor Pelevin's novel, Buddha's Little Finger, is currently completing its pre-production stage in Germany. Directed by Tony Pemberton, this will become Pelevin's first English-language screen adaptation. Toby Kebbell (Match Point by Woody Allen, Rocknrolla by Guy Ritchie) is cast in the leading role.

      The filming in Germany is expected to last only for 1 month, and the film release is scheduled for September 2013. According to producer Karsten Stöter, Pelevin's novel (originally titled "Chapayev and Void") was considerably re-worked for the script, however Pelevin did not object to the result. 

      The acclaimed novel follows the trials and tribulations of the leading character during the failed coup against Mikhail Gorbachev. Pelevin's other famous novel, Generation P, was brought to Russian screen in 2011. It collected mixed, although generally positive reviews from both the novel's and cinema fans.

      It is interesting to note that Buddha's Little Finger is the novel's official U.S. title. In the UK the book is known as Clay Machine Gun.
