Serial killers. Many people are fascinated by them. Some take that fascination and twist it into some kind of perverse hero worship while others live to see the day that these evil bastards get their comeuppance. A few folks, however, have to keep them alive.
From the Press Release
Kellie Madison has signed on to direct the crime drama horror thriller Without Remorse based on Dr. Vonda Pelto’s book of the same name. The feature film will depict Pelto’s time as a psychologist at the L.A. County Men’s Central Jail in the early 80’s when she was tasked with preventing suicides among the high profile serial killers such as The Freeway Killer and Hillside Strangler. Madison, who is a finalist with her film The Caul in Ron Howard’s ‘Project Imagination,’ is set to direct her own thriller titled Hotel 33 for Emmett/Furla Films this winter.
In bringing Without Remorse to the big screen, she will helm a script adapted by Cassius Shuman and Jim Koski. The graphic thriller, based on a true story, includes authentic dialogue from the serial killers that Pelto treated during her tenure in the jail. Shuman, Koski, and Kim Estes will produce under their Tucker Road Productions banner in partnership with producers Dwjuan Fox and Nicolas Emiliani of Decipher Entertainment. The producers are seeking to cast an actress in the female lead role with an eye on a spring 2014 production.
