The film company Good Universe was founded just a few years ago, but has already made a name for itself on such comedies as "The Stars" and "Neighbors. On the warpath. " According to The Hollywood Reporter , now its management decided to try their hand at the drama genre. Good Universe Studios is starting work on a biopic of For Death with Dignity ”activist Brittany Maynard , who was fatally diagnosed at the age of 29.|
Maynard was born in Anaheim, California. On January 1, 2014, an astrocytoma was found in her brain. Brittany underwent surgery to resect part of the temporal lobe, but three months later the tumor returned as malignant glioblastoma. The doctors gave the girl a disappointing prognosis: she had about six months to live.
Maynard decided to move from her native California to Oregon, one of three states with dignified death laws for the terminally ill. Brittany spent the rest of her days trying to draw public attention to the problem of euthanasia. Her video message on YouTube received several million views, and then CNN Corporation agreed to publish her article " My Right to Die with Dignity at 29 ". Brittany passed away on November 1, 2014, taking special pills to suppress respiratory function. At that moment, her friends and relatives were next to her.
The story of Brittany Maynard has caused a wide public response in America. Last year, California authorities decided to pass a dignified death law that gives terminally ill people the right to voluntarily die.
Maynard 's husband Dan Diaz will be the executive producer of the film.
