Netflix to follow Norwegian shooter

Image Over the past few years, the online service Netflix has not only made huge strides in making TV series, but also started to invest heavily in producing its own films. As it became known to the edition Deadline , the streaming giant has outstripped five major Hollywood studios at once in the fight for the script of Paul Greengrass about one of the most brutal criminals of the XXI century.

While the untitled biographical drama Netflix will tell viewers about the life of the terrorist Anders Behring Breivik , who on July 22, 2011 first blew up a minibus in the government quarter of Oslo, and then went to the island of Uteja, where he discovered shooting at the visitors of the youth summer camp of the Labor Party. A double terrorist attack killed 77 people. Another 319 Norwegians were injured of varying severity.

According to the "Norwegian shooter" himself, he committed crimes to draw public attention to his 1518-page manifesto entitled " 2083: European Declaration of Independence ". In November 2011, Breivik was diagnosed with "paranoid schizophrenia," however, a second psychiatric examination found him sane. On August 24, 2012 Anders was sentenced to death in Norway - 21 years in prison.


The director's chair of the film about Breivik will be taken by Paul Greengrass , whose track record includes such famous biographical dramas as "Bloody Sunday", "Lost Flight", "Don't Take Alive "And" Captain Phillips ". As reported, the leadership of Netflix is ready to allocate $ 20 million for the creation of the feed. Greengrass intends not only to shoot her in Norway, but also to take on key roles of local actors. The film's production team will include Scott Rudin (The Truman Show), Gregory Goodman (X-Men: First Class) and Eli Bush (The Grand Budapest Hotel).


Paul Greengrass also plans to work on the adaptation of the graphic novel " Torso " about Eliot Ness's hunt for a maniac nicknamed Cleveland Butcher .
