Lucky McKee Boards The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot

Lucky McKee, the man who brought us May and The Woman, has joined as a producer on Epic Picture Group’s The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot, according to FrightFest co-director Alan Jones. Jones writes, “Fab news. Lucky McKee producing with John Sayles, The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then Bigfoot starring Sam Elliott, director Bob Krzykowski.”

Epic Pictures’ Shaked Berenson and Patrick Ewald will also act as producers on the film, which begins principal photography this summer on the East Coast. Douglas Trumbull and Richard Yuricich (2001: A Space Odyssey, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Blade Runner) will be working on this film with creature team Spectral Motion (Hellboy, Pacific Rim).

McKee also tweeted the news:

A legendary American war veteran named Calvin Barr (Elliott), 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.
