Vor is the latest manuscript to sell its film rights before the publishing rights have sold.

We are hearing from multiple sources that premium streaming service Netflix has acquired the Russian mafia manuscript by newcomer author in a preemptive film rights deal.

Producing deals are being negotiated with a heavyweight outfit that will be partnered with Energy’s (Out of the Furnace), Mike Tadross Jr. (Category 5), and Vertigo Entertainment’s .

In the Russian Mafia, a “Vor” is a made man; an honor only given when the recruit shows loyalty beyond measure, with members of the Vor-world accepting the code of the “Thief within the Law”. Criminologists and top military officials have cited Vor as one of the most lethal, best structured criminal organizations in history, still in operation to this day. It is within this world that Rose’s thrilling story takes place.

This type of subject matter, which has been described as being in the vein of The Godfather meets Eastern Promises, plays specifically to Netflix’s new territories which are craving content specific to their region. In addition to this is the apparent semi-autobiographical nature we hear the author has infused, growing up in Russia with her family’s proximity to this infamous international cartel with ties in virtually every major city.

What could mark Netflix’s first film rights deal on unpublished material was brokered by Gersh partner Joe Veltre and Energy Entertainment’s Weaver, and sets up another potential publishing frenzy – much like Alexandra Monir’s Final Six, which sold to Sony in a preemptive film rights deal that triggered a publishing bidding war won by HarperCollins.

    “In addition to this is the apparent semi-autobiographical nature we hear the author has infused, growing up in Russia with her family’s proximity to this infamous international cartel with ties in virtually every major city.”

    this means that its “roots” were thieves in the law or were part of the criminal underworld ? is not that why her ” roots ” moved to the United States ?
