Content Media has scored international sales rights to “Pistorius,” an Oscar Pistorius documentary feature about the rise and fall of the inspiring, Olympic hero turned convicted murderer – a film being dubbed “Making a Murderer” meets “Senna”.
At the 2012 Olympics, South African Oscar Pistorius made history by becoming the first double-amputee sprinter to compete in the Olympics. He was one of the world’s most successful sportsmen, and an inspiration to millions.
Not even a year later, he was arrested and charged for the murder of his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. The trial of Pistorius placed the whole country and its problems under the media spotlight.
Vaughan Sivell (“Mr. Calzaghe”) is directing the movie, which is currently in production. He will also produce with Sean Richard.
