A dramatised film about the Christchurch mosque massacre is in the works just months after the attack left 51 people dead and dozens injured.

Producer and Cambridge scholar Moez Masoud will helm the movie alongside Rick Castañeda.

The pair are believed to have written the script together, and began talks only nine days after a white supremacist opened fire on the Al Noor Mosque and Linwood Islamic center during Friday prayers on March 15.

The film will follow a family who have escaped a life of death and destruction in Afghanistan and moved to Christchurch.

Prior to the terrorist attack, New Zealand was considered one of the safest places in the world.

'In Christchurch, on March 15, the world witnessed an unspeakable crime against humanity,' Masoud told Variety.
