The Andreasyan Brothers Film Company has bought the rights to the film adaptation of Ekaterina Martynova’s book “Confession of a Dungeon Prisoner”. About this reports “Bulletin of the film distributor”.
Director and producer Sarik Andreasyan said that there was a whole queue for the rights to the film, but Martynova turned to him personally.
“I still don’t know for sure whether I will be the director of this story or remain a producer. Ekaterina will advise us and help in every way to make the story honest and on absolutely real events, “he said.
The film adaptation can become a series under the working title “Unbroken”. Andreasyan stressed that this will not be a story about a maniac, but about a girl who survived imprisonment. Production of the project will begin in 2022.
Ekaterina Martynova and another victim, Elena Samokhina, were abducted by Viktor Mokhov in September 2000. He detained 14-year-old Martynova and 17-year-old Samokhina for three years and seven months, using them as sex slaves. In 2004, the girls managed to escape by handing over a note asking for help to the maniac’s lodger. Later Martynova decided to tell about the horror she experienced and wrote the book “Confession of a dungeon prisoner”.
