We scream for original films and now we’re getting one. Imagine a world in which the same man who assassinated Hitler is sent off to do the same to Bigfoot…
John Sayles is exec producing and the great Sam Elliott (Tombstone) has come aboard to star in writer/director Robert Krzykowski’s The Man Who Killed Hitler and then The Bigfoot.
The story follows a legendary American war veteran named Calvin Barr (Elliott) who, decades after serving in WWII and assassinating Adolf Hitler, must now hunt down the fabled Bigfoot. Living a peaceful life in New England, the former veteran is contacted by the FBI and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to lead the charge as the creature is carrying a deadly plague and is hidden deep inside the Canadian wilderness.
I love the idea that Bigfoot is sick and therefore needs to be killed before he spreads some sort of disease. This is the kind of weird and unique genre films we need!
But wait! It gets even better! Deadline reports that Krzykowski will also produce with genre fav Lucky McKee (The Woman, The Woods, May), as well as Patrick Ewald and Shaked Berenson.
Principal photography is set for August 2017 on the East Coast.
