The movie Oscar Pistorius: Blade Runner Killer' will air in South Africa this weekend after it showed in the US a week ago.

The movie starts Joburg-born actor Andreas Damm as Pistorius and Victoria Secret model Toni Garrn as Reeva Steenkamp.

EWN reporter, Nadia Neophytou says the Pistorius family says they are not happy with the movie as they were not contacted by the producers.

I spoke to Andreas Damm who plays Oscar Pistorius in the movie. He says it is a dramatisation and its based on the events that are in the public realm.

We have seen this in films such as Winnie based on the story of Winnie Madikizela Mandela where she was not engaged about the film so it has happened before.

The movie, presented by the Lifetime Channel, airs in South Africa on 18 November at 8pm on DStv's channel 131.
