CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -
It's story that captivated the country. Will a movie do the same? Some say it's glamorizing a monster, but others say it'll raise public awareness.
When Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus were rescued, the whole world was glued to the TV, eager to find out where they'd been and what happened to them. Now, Hollywood is betting there's still a lot of interest in the story of Ariel Castro and his victims.
If it's going to be accurate, I'm curious to see how he got away with it all those years and how the girls didn't get an opportunity to get away," said Lloyd Wollmershauser.
At a salon not far from Seymour Avenue, women are still talking about it and believe this compelling story is worth telling.
"If it's done from the proper angle and honors what those girls went through, we are all interested to see what they've gone through and what they've come out of," said Kelly Kadas.
"I think it's a true Cleveland miracle that the girls were found alive after all those years," said Alex Noernberg. "I think it's a painful story to watch but a real story to watch."
Others in Tremont would rather see Castro forgotten forever.
"He was an evil man," said Randall Middaugh. "I don't want to see that. Don't want to even watch it."
The movie is reportedly based on Michelle Knight's book. Amanda and Gina won't be a part of it.
Their attorney said: "It is unfortunate when third parties choose to exploit these brave women for private gain. Amanda and Gina have had – and will have – absolutely nothing to do with this movie project."
