After winning several literary awards and garnering global acclaim for its clever originality, South African author Lauren Beukes' science-fiction novel, Zoo City, recently saw its film rights awarded to producer Helena Spring (Red Dust, Yesterday, The First Grader), a fellow South African.  Before fans of the Johannesburg-set novel fret at the idea of a film version missing the mark when it comes to capturing the essence of the original story, they should know that Beukes does not intend to let that happen.
