Trailer for Oscar Pistorius movie causes stir

A trailer for the upcoming Lifetime film Oscar Pistorius: Blade Runner Killer has been released, and it seems neither the Steenkamps nor the Pistorius family were aware of its existence.

According to the statement, the family is "horrified and upset" to read that the movie was told from Steenkamp and her mother's perspective.

She said the "damaging and misleading claim, which was made in a report by the leading trade newspaper Dateline Hollywood" has not been denied by Lifetime.

The lawyer said she could not comment at this stage what form any legal action would take, if the family decided on that route.

Pistorius shot and killed Stenkamp on Valentine's Day 2013.

A new movie, Blade Runner Killer is set to hit the big screens soon.

Cpt Mangena goes on to describe how he believes Steenkamp then fell onto a seated position on top of a magazine rack, and the knowledge of this prompted Pistorius to change directions and fire three more shots, including a fatal head shot.

South Africans are calling on parents of Reeva Steenkamp to sue the producers of the movie given that they had no idea such a movie was being made nor did they know a trailer was going to be in circulation.

While others said South Africa should have done the film about Pistorius first. It stars Andreas Damm, a South African actor based in NY and Toni Garrn, a German model and actress.

All the courtroom drama will also feature judging by the trailer, which ends with the teary face of Pistorius, saying "I truly loved her".

Whether it's based on fact, or mostly fiction based on facts, is impossible to say.

The film is set to premiere in the USA on November 11, but, in Mzansi the release date has yet to be confirmed.

South Africans must make up their own minds when it reaches the local silver screen.
