UK’s Channel 4 and Revolution Films are currently working on a trilogy revolving around the serial killer known as the ‘Yorkshire Ripper’ who terrorised the North East of England, according to Variety.
Peter Sutcliffe was convicted of murdering 13 victims between 1975 and 1980, and the case was one of the largest ever investigations by a UK police force. Unfortunately for the police, computers weren’t widely used in the 1970’s so they had to write everything down and ended up screwing things up a few times. Peter Sutcliffe is currently severing multiple life sentences and claimed God told him to carry out the murders.
The films will be based on three of the four books in David Peace’s ‘Red Riding Quartet’, and are being made as a TV series, with a U.K. cinema release and then possibily sold other countries after that.
The budget for the three films is $10 million, which is the equivalent to 10 minutes of Transformers.
