Oscar Pistorius film in the pipeline


Western Edge Pictures, an independent London based production company, will
produce a documentary on the Oscar Pistorius story, due for release in 2017. CEO,
writer and producer Vaughan Sivell will direct the movie titled: Oscar
Pistorius: Killing a Dream
. Production on the film begins in March 2015.

Pistorius is a South African Paralympic sprint runner who shot and killed his model
girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day 2013 and was later convicted of her
murder. The film will explore these events and in addition feature aspects of South
Africa’s history. According to a report by Screen Daily Sivell commented, “For us it’s the
story of South Africa alongside the story of Oscar, it’s so cinematic; it’s a real once
in a lifetime project in terms of scale.’

The film will reportedly be made in collaboration with Gareth Davies, a Telegraph
sports journalist who has known Pistorius personally and followed his career for
over 13 years.
