  • Jon Venables who was 10 when he and Robert Thompson killed toddler James Bulger has been charged over indecent images of children. His trial is to be held in private at an unnamed court the Crown Prosecution Service has said

According to a publicist for Detainment, the filmmakers were unable to offer a comment at this time due to the time difference between the U.S. and U.K. However, Lambe previously apologized for not contacting Fergus for permission to explore her son's story.

Two-year-old Bulger was tortured and killed by 10-year-olds Robert Thompson and Jon Venables in Liverpool in 1993, in what became one of Britain's most notorious crimes and subsequent murder trials.

The paid snatched James Bulger from outside a butcher's shop in Bootle, Merseyside, in 1993, while his mother popped into a store for just a few seconds.

The film recreates the moments before and after the murder and is based on transcripts of the police interviews with Venables and Thompson.

In a statement posted on Twitter, Fergus said she was "disgusted and upset" that the Academy had chosen to honour the film, which was made without the family's permission.

Fergus had previously spoken out about the film on UK TV's Loose Women earlier this month, saying she won't watch it because "I don't want to keep going back there all the time".

"After everything I've said about this so called film and asking for it to be removed, it's still been nominated for an Oscar".

"I just hope the film doesn't win its category in the Oscars".

She told the programme: "I'm asking people to boycott it because I just don't think it should have been made in the first place, especially without James's parents being consulted". I don't think he had the right to do it...

James" father, Ralph Bulger, 51, said Hollywood should "hang its head in shame" for nominating the "sympathetic portrayal' of the killers.

The filmmaker previously told BBC News that the film was not meant to cause any further grief for Bulger's family.

"I'm incredibly sorry for any upset that the film has caused to them; it was never meant to bring any more anguish to the Bulger family", the filmmaker told RTE.

"As we set out to make a fact-based film that was impartial, we did not attempt to contact any of the families involved and instead relied exclusively on the factual material", he said.

In an interview with BBC News, he added: "I wouldn't expect them to be comfortable with a film which humanises the boys but I do hope they understand the reason it was made, and it certainly wasn't to bring any more grief to them".
