This August two filmmakers set out to find a killer in an attempt to make a hit true-crime film in Faking a Murder, directed by Stuart Stone (The Haunted House of Kirby Road, Scarecrows).
Faking a Murderer follows two filmmakers on their noble yet perhaps misguided quest to track down a seedy-looking stranger they’ve discovered online who — in a disturbing video — seemingly confesses to a murder. Or at least that’s what they think. Seeing the popularity of true crime shows, they decide to try and turn this discovery into their own killer hit. With the support (both moral and financial) of a distributor, Stuart Stone and Adam Rodness set off on their journey to try and track down this elusive creep. When they bring the video to law enforcement, they’re told — repeatedly — that it’s really not much to go on, and they’re putting a lot of time and energy into what essentially is a fool’s errand. Determined to make this work, they flex, stretch, and break their budget in pursuit of a hit new crime story, but are they in over their heads?
Adam Rodness (Hemlock Grove, Epic Studios), Stu Stone (Donnie Darko, Jamie Kennedy’s Blowin’ Up!), Tony Nappo (Saw, Mother’s Day), Josh Cruddas (Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City), and Phillip Jarrett star in the horror-comedy written by Stu Stone and Adam Rodness.

Adam Rodness, Stu Stone, Ira Levy, and Mike Mcguigan serve as producers for the indie film from 5’7 Films, Breakthrough Entertainment, Hollywood Suite, and Astrolab Studios.
Faking A Murderer arrives on VOD and Digital on August 6, 2021, from 4Digital Media. Ahead of its release, we’ve got two new clips. The first shows the filmmakers making the pitch and in the second clip we see the filmmakers get up close and personal with their subject.
