Peacock Films Pty. Ltd. plans to release Ulli Lommel's Killer Pickton on DVD in Australia in October. The movie is a fictionalized account of the real-life serial murder of "as many as 125 Vancouver-based prostitutes and drug addicts over a twenty-year period" - although by the standards of the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), it may constitute a "non-fiction film"/"documentary" (cf. J.T. Petty's S&man).

According to the Internet Movie Database (IMDb), the screenplay for Killer Pickton was written by Lommel and Jeff Frentzen; the movie stars Curtis Graan, Jillian Swanson, Heidi Rhodes, Kate Hackett, Anjeanette Stairs, Lauren Kruskall, Jill Pennington, Frank Godek, Marilyn Cortez, and Victoria Holland.
