Netflix Picks Up Russian Mob Tale “VOR”

Netflix has acquired the film rights to Rimma Rose’s manuscript “VOR” which will be developed into a Netflix original film produced by Vertigo Entertainment.

The book follows the bloody rise of Russia’s most powerful ‘VOR’ mafia commander and is the first of an intended trilogy.

Rose grew up in Russia with her family in the 1990’s amid the collapse of the government and observed the rise of several powerful ‘Vor’ mafia clans who warred for control of various parts of Moscow.

Roy Lee, Brooklyn Weaver and Mike Tadross Jr. will produce.
