Sam Elliott has been locked down to play the lead role in Epic Pictures’ upcoming feature The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot, which will be executive produced by John Sayles and directed by Robert Krzykowski, according to Deadline.

Per the site, the story follows a legendary American war veteran named Cavlin Barr (Elliott), who, 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.

Krzykowski will be producing alongside Epic Pictures’ Patrick Ewald and Shaked Berenson. Additionally, Lucky McKee (May, The Woman) will also act as a producer.

The film will begin 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).
