MOSCOW, May 5. /TASS/. British television will make screen versions of Erast Fandorin mystery novels by Russian writer Boris Akunin, the writer said in on his Facebook page on Tuesday.

"Now, Erast Fandorin will speak English, rather than Russian, from the TV screen," Akunin said in the Facebook. Three novels - The Death of the Achilles, The State Counselor and The Coronation, have been included in a pilot project", Akunin said, adding "it was not quite clear to him how all these novels could be combined in a single block.

Films based on the Erast Fandorin Mystery novels were released in Russia more than once. The most successful projects were - Azazel, the Turkish Gambit and The State Counsellor with famous actor and theater director Oleg Menshikov starring.
