EXCLUSIVE: Netflix has set Alessandro Camon to adapt VOR, a feature based on the manuscript by neophyte author Rimma Rose. The manuscript will be submitted to publishers shortly. The film details the bloody rise of Russia’s most powerful ‘VOR’ mafia commander. The producers are Roy Lee and Vertigo Entertainment, Brooklyn Weaver and Mike Tadross Jr.
Rose, who grew up in Russia with her family in the 90’s amid the collapse of the government, observed the rise of several powerful ‘Vor’ mafia clans who warred for control of various parts of Moscow, with infamous and bloody collateral damage as the result. She has turned it into a fictional tale meant to be a trilogy. It starts with the rise of a young street-wise criminal whose prison battles with other young Vor gain the attention of the higher ups – whom he will eventually seek to replace.
Camon is writing Black Lion for Stay Gold Features, with Andrew Garfield attached to star and produce with Rupert Fowler and Daniela Taplin Lundberg, with Nicholas Mavroleon, Aidan Hartley and Camon exec producing.
Camon is represented by CAA and attorney Bob Getman at Jackoway Tyerman. The author’s repped by Gersh and Weaver’s Energy Entertainment.
