Exploring documentary or drama options.

Independent UK producer Nick London has secured the film and TV rights to the story of Paul and Rachel Chandler, the British couple held hostage in Somalia after being kidnapped in 2009.

In October 2009, the couple was kidnapped from their sailing boat Lynn Rival, and then they were taken to Somalia and held for more than a year. Eventually the Chandlers were released in Nov 2010.

London’s credits include Blue Moon Rising, My 18 Years Of Captivity and The Real Full Monty.

He said: “This is a remarkable story and we are exploring all possible options including documentary and drama.”
