Casting is now underway to turn the story of Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro into Lifetime television movie.
The movie will be based on Knight's book, which is due out next month.
Survivors Gina DeJesus and Amanda Berry have also signed a book deal to tell their story with Mary Jordan, a Pulitzer Prize winner and a former Clevelander.
Castro was sentenced to life, plus 1,000 years, for kidnapping and sexually assaulting Berry, Knight and DeJesus while holding them captive in his Seymour Avenue house for over a decade.
Castro used a bed sheet to hang himself in his cell at the Correctional Reception Center in Orient, Pickaway County, on September 3. He had been there one month.
Below is a statement from the attorneys of Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus:
