British TV company Company Pictures has begun work on the creation of three-part film about the case of former FSB officer Alexander Litvinenko. It is reported by The Guardian.

The film will be based on the book "Very expensive poison" of The Guardian in Moscow former correspondent Luke Harding.

"The book is remarkable fiction close to life, it's like a story about James Bond", - said the head of Company Pictures Judy Kannigan.

The film company noted that in this drama are "mixed global shifts in world politics, the persistence of British detectives, as well as the importance of democracy, freedom of speech and the rule of law to protect us from demagoguery."

Let us recall that Alexander Litvinenko, a former employee of the special services of the USSR and Russia, and then an implacable critic of the Kremlin who received asylum and citizenship in Britain, died in November 2006 after drinking tea with polonium - radioactive and highly toxic.

The investigation concluded that the murder could be arranged by two citizens of Russia, Andrei Lugovoi and Dmitry Kovtun. They both and official Moscow denied their involvement, and Russia refuses to extradite its citizens for trial.
