Glitter, 78, was caged in 2015 for sex offences against three girls aged eight to 13, and was recently freed from having served just half of his 16-year sentence.

The documentary, currently under the working title Hunting Gary Glitter, will cover the singer’s life story and ultimately his conviction.

It will include exclusive access to the journalist who pursued Glitter across the world, over several years eventually alerting the authorities to his whereabouts in South East Asia which led to his arrest, reports

The defiant rocker was released from HMP The Verne, in Portland, Dorset, on February 3, 2023, and sources hit out at his release saying that he “hasn’t engaged properly with the treatment he was offered inside.”

One source said: “He attended the sessions but made it quite clear he wasn’t interested.

“It was like a naughty kid staring out of the window throughout class.

“If a dangerous sex offender refuses to engage, surely they’re just not fit for release?”

The convicted paedo is currently living in a bail hostel, and according to his son Gary Pantoja Sosa, 21, is planning to flee the UK for Spain once he is allowed to leave.

The musician and tattoo artist, is in regular contact with his father but the pair have yet to meet.

A source said: “Glitter is looking to move as soon as he can. He knows Britain is dangerous.

“He has a son in Spain and he’s in touch with him and he could go there.

“He’s told him that’s the plan. He will need to keep a low profile and stay out of the way.”

Glitter fathered Gary Jnr with Yudenia Sosa Martinez while hiding in Cuba in 2001.

Hunting Gary Glitter is is being produced by Voltage Films, which is also behind Netflix’s upcoming dramatization of the Prince Andrew scandal.
