A new film that will start shooting next month will be loosely based on the story of Lake Tahoe kidnapping victim Jaycee Lee Dugard.  Entitled “Abducted Girl, an American sex slave,” the movie is scheduled to be released as early as Spring of 2010.  The maker of the film, Shane Ryan, says it will focus on the relationship between the victim and the predator, and in this case, Dugard and her alleged kidnappers, Phillip and Nancy Garrido.  Dugard never tried to escape her captors, and that will be a part of the film, as well as an examination of Stockholm Syndrome, which is when a hostage shows signs of loyalty to their captor.
