One of the filmmakers behind hit Netflix documentary series Making A Murderer has expressed her desire to direct a film about Florence And The Machine

Laura Ricciardi, along with Moira Demos, filmed the series over a ten year period, focusing on the murder trial and conviction of two men in Manitowoc, Wisconsin: Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey. Both men are currently serving life sentences, having been convicted in 2007, with Making A Murderer paying particular attention to perceived injustices in the case.

Ricciardi and Demos both appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night (January 12) when they were asked about what projects they would like to pursue next. Ricciardi replied: "I would love to follow Florence + The Machine, but I haven't reached out to her yet".
