Germany's infamous cannibal killer ARMIN MEIWES is to be the subject of a shocking TV documentary.

Meiwes, who was jailed for eight-and-a-half years in January (04) for killing and partially eating a man he met on the internet, has signed over the media rights to his case to a Hamburg-based production company, who are planning a film they hope will "come to terms with an unusual criminal case".

Meiwes is also the subject of controversial director ROSA VON PRAUNHEIM's planned movie and a rock song by band Rammstein.
