LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – A housewife raised by monkeys, Marina Chapman aka Maria Luz, is publishing a socking narrative next year. The housewife claims that Capuchin monkeys raised her in a Tarzan setting inside the Colombian jungle. Now filmmakers are set to bring Chapman’s story to the big screen.
The book heading to newsstands is called The Girl with No Name. Blink Films has acquired the rights to her story. Marina Chapman’s narrative is being assisted by her children.
Marina’s story starts at age five when she was abducted by persons seeking to generate a ransom. When the abduction went afoul, Marina Chapman escaped. She soon found herself in a habitat of Capuchin monkeys.
There she claims the monkeys taught her how to hunt, survive, and eat. She claims that she became one of their families. Marina’s daughter tells news “She obviously learnt to fend for herself and only once got very ill when she ate some poisonous berries.”
Marina evaluated fled the jungle as a teenager and was adopted by a Colombia family. They changed her name to Marina Luz. Then in her twenties, she headed to England where she met her current husband, John Chapman.
Marina’s children tell news that “when we wanted food, we had to make noises for it. All my school friends loved Mum as she was so unusual. She was childlike, too, in many ways.” They add “I got bedtime stories about the jungle, as did my sisters. We didn’t think it odd – it was just Mum telling her life. So in a way it was nothing special having a mother like that.”
