Filming is schedule to start soon on U Want Me 2 Kill Him?, a new British film, directed by Andrew Douglas.

Inspired by a bizarre real-life stabbing which took place in Altrincham, Manchester in 2003 when a 14 year old, groomed his on-line friend, then 16, with an elaborate matrix of deceit involving a series of fictional identities in a chatroom. The film's story is based on Judy Bachrach's Vanity Fair article about the case and follows a 16 year old boy named Mark who meets Rachel on the Internet and begins an intense online relationship. When Rachel is murdered, the boy and Rachel's brother make plans to avenge her death.

Two of Screenterrier's favourite British rising stars have been cast by the director with a lot of input from executive producer Bryan Singer who, several years ago, had wanted to direct the film himself.
