Comedian John Fortune is to script a drama about Simon Mann and his attempted coup plot in Equatorial Guinea.
The Coup! executive producer, Jess Pope, said the drama would expose the coup leaders greed and incompetence in addition to Mann’s betrayal by Nick du Toit.
"This is a story of a plot of astonishing audacity. A small coterie of well-connected, white, middle-class Englishmen were arrogant enough to believe they could storm in and plunder the rights to the oil reserves of a minor African dictatorship (EG) in a ‘get rich quick’ scheme to shore up their own private pensions."
