One of the oldest studios in the country, the film studio. Gorky, is going to shoot a spy detective on the scandalous topic of sports doping scams. The main character will be a chemist from the USA Anti-Doping Center, who fled to the United States to become an informant for the World Anti-Doping Agency.|
A USA scientist finds himself embroiled in a doping scandal by athletes. Having changed his appearance, he is forced to hide in the United States, while agreeing to become a secret informant for WADA. And now the main characters have to find out what really happened: did doping really become part of the training of athletes, or are all the accusations a grandiose lie? A similar story actually happened four years ago with chemist Grigory Rodchenkov.
“All events are fictional, but not without a real basis. There are no coincidences, but, as it is written in many films, “inspired by real events”, ”said the film's producer Lika Blank. The script for the film with the working title "Duchess" is almost ready, and in May the project will be presented at the Cannes festival. The premiere of the film is scheduled for 2022.
