This summer just got a little bit hotter: A film recounting some real-life horrors will land in theaters in August.
No Man of God–which delves into the relationship between serial killer Ted Bundy and FBI Agent Bill Hagmaier–will hit the big screen on an as-yet-undetermined August date, as reported by Deadline. The movie premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last June. Stay tuned for an exact August release date.
RLJE Films has the North America rights to the film, which stars Luke Kirby (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) as Bundy and Elijah Wood (Frodo Baggins of The Lord of the Rings fame) as Hagmaier. Aleksa Palladino (The Irishman) and Robert Patrick (Terminator 2) round out the cast.
No Man of God, as explained, takes moviegoers back to the time following the 1980 sentencing of Bundy to death by electrocution. In the ensuing years, he agreed to disclose the details of his horrific crimes–but only to Hagmaier.
The movie–directed by Amber Sealey from a screenplay by Kit Lesser–relates “a story that has never been told,” said RLJE chief acquisitions officer Mark Ward. “No Man of God brings a new and revealing perspective to the Ted Bundy story.”
Sealey said in a recent interview that the film is comprised of a series of conversations between Bundy and Hagmaier and “recollections from Bill of these conversations. Hagmaier is the man who’s credited with getting Ted Bundy to come clean about the crimes right before his execution.”
No Man of God was produced by Spectrevision–Wood’s production company founded in 2010–along with Daniel Noah, Lisa Whalen and Kim Sherman.
