CANNES -Power Duo to Take Up Nobel Cause- Former BBC Films chief David Thompson and "Mamma Mia!" firector Phyllida Lloyd are developing a movie based on the influence of Nobel Prize winner Muhammad Yunus' radical economic theories on the lives of women. The U.K.-based Thompson is developing under his Origin Pictures banner,and will work alongside producers Christian de Boisredon, Vivian Norris de Montaigu and Nicolas Jourdier, who initiated the project and collaborated closely with Yunus to bring the project to the table.Known as the world's "banker to the poor," Yunus began by lending $27 to 42 people in 1976. His Grameen bank has since loaned more than $6 billion in Bangladesh and his work has been duplicated in over 100 countries.By lending predominantly to women in poor communities, Yunus has managed to foster a spirit of collective responsibility underpinning the bank's success -- it boasts a 98.5% repayment rate, far higher than any commercial banks. "Yunus has thrown down the gauntlet to all of us," Lloyd said." How to live our lives. If the poorest of the poor can transform their worlds, what excuse is there for the rest of us? This is an astonishing story of not taking 'no' for an answer."We believe it will be entertaining and gripping, shining a spotlight on the global stories that bind and divide us," Thompson said.
