They'll need a decent budget - $50million or so I'd say - to do the novel justice. I have a lot of affection for Shantaram but it'll need a serious paring-down to get it to a manageable length if they aren't planning to split into into more than one book, and they won't be because it's really not for kids.
Having seen what roberts actually looks like, I was really hoping for Daniel Craig in the role but Edgerton isn't a bad substitute; miles better than Depp anyway.
I'm saying this just to people who know the book - it'd be amazing if they manage to get Amitabh Bachchan to play Khader Khan!

can't help but lament how special the Depp/Weir could have turned out. There was a real promise of magic there.

Oh didn't mean to say I don't like Depp, he's a great actor that goes without saying, but the character, at least as written in the book, is an unattractive thug and about as un-Johnny-Depp-y as you can imagine
