Netflix To Release True Crime Documentary On Canadian Killer Luka Magnotta
Netflix has yet another true crime documentary in the works, and this one is bizarre even for them.
Three-part documentary Don't F**k With Cats: Hunting An Internet Killer centres on Luka Magnotta who became something of an internet sensation after posting a video of him killing two kittens.
The Canadian was then later convicted of brutally murdering Chinese student Jun Lin in 2012.
This gripping new doc follows a group of amateur detectives from around the world who set out to find Magnotta and bring him to justice after the initial video of him killing the pair of cats was shared online in 2010.
He was eventually arrested at an internet cafe in Berlin, while reportedly looking at an Interpol photograph of himself.
The documentary, which is set to be released next month, was directed by Mark Lewis (Silk Road: Drugs, Death And The Dark Web).
Speaking to Deadline about the bizarre case, he said it will leave viewers 'gasping'.
Mark said: "What is so mind-blowing for me about this documentary series is that it plays out like a real thriller, with twists and turns that no-one will see coming, a cast of internet heroes whose resourcefulness will have you cheering from the sidelines, and a murderer whose true identity will have you gasping when he is finally unmasked."

This is the latest in a long line of true crime docs Netflix has been working on of late.
One of the latest additions to its impressive roster of hard-hitting films is Dream/Killer - which is available now.
While most of us know about Making A Murderer, this series follows a different Kathleen Zellner case.
Dream/Killer is based on a man who took on the American justice system after his son Ryan was sentenced to prison for a murder he claimed not to have committed.
In the 2015 documentary, Bill Ferguson took on the judiciary, alongside powerhouse attorney Kathleen Zellner, who represented Steven Avery in court.
It looks into the 2001 murder of a man called Kent Heitholt. He was found dead in his work car park and had been strangled with his own belt.
Kathleen Zellner tweeted that the documentary would be on Netflix with a picture of former client Ryan celebrating his freedom.
Don't F**k With Cats: Hunting An Internet Killer will be available on Netflix from 18 December.
