Daniel Ferrands, the director of Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers, is back with his new true crime film American Boogeyman, the story of the detective and FBI profiler who hunted serial killer Ted Bundy.
Chad Michael Murray, who starred in Warner Bros’ 2005 House of Wax remake, The Haunting in Connecticut: Ghosts of Georgia, and the CW’s “Riverdale,” will star as the serial killer Ted Bundy, ScreenDaily reports.
Murray will star alongside Lin Shaye (Insidious, The Grudge) and Holland Roden (Sony’s Escape Room 2, MTV’s Teen Wolf).
“Set in a gritty and decadent 1970s America, American Boogeyman follows the elusive and charming killer and the manhunt that brought him to justice involving the detective and the FBI rookie who coined the phrase ‘serial killer’.”
Farrands is also behind several other true-crime films including The Amityville Murders, The Murder of Nicole Brown Simpson, and 2019’s The Haunting of Sharon Tate.
Voltage Pictures has worldwide rights to the thriller. Fathom Events will be releasing it in theaters across the country on August 16, 2021.
