Entertainment Weekly released the exclusive promo for Oscar Pistorius: Blade Runner Killer. It stars Andreas Damm as Pistorius and Toni Garrn as Steenkamp.
The film chronicles the story of the fatal shooting on Valentine’s Day, his relationship with Steenkamp and his homicide trial.
The Steenkamp and Pistorius families have confirmed that they were not consulted during the making of the movie Oscar Pistorius: Blade Runner Killer.
Oscar’s brother, Carl Pistorius, he had not yet seen the trailer. After viewing the content, Carl was left “speechless.”
Carl confirmed that the Pistorius family were not contacted by the producers of the movie, saying: “The title sounds like the movie was made with a bias to the producers.”
He went on to say: “We can’t control the content people put out. Directors and producers have the right to make movies about whatever topic they choose. Looking at trademark and image rights, we will be taking the matter further with our legal team.”
