TV Tonight recently confirmed it would not air in 2013 but production would begin this year.
Nine has declined to provide further details of the production, largely to avoid opponents disrupting the project.
Today News Corp reports the drama is due to begin filming this month on the Gold Coast but all news of casting has been silenced.
Based on the book Sins Of The Father by journalist Eamon Duff it is to be directed by Khoa Do (Better Man) and produced by Jason Stephens.
Despite the Corby family’s previous alignments with the Nine Network for interviews, it won more than $50,000 in damages over unapproved use of family photographs in the book.
It is understood that the family has not negotiated any media deal yet for Schapelle’s release and is awaiting her parole to be granted.
