A Dwarf Joins The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot


Aidan Turner, who played Kili in the Hobbit trilogy, has joined the cast of The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot, which is being headlined by Sam Elliott, according to Deadline. Turner (“Being Human,” “Poldark”) will be playing the young Calvin Barr, a role that will be taken over by Elliott during his older endeavors.

Epic Pictures’ Shaked Berenson and Patrick Ewald will act as producers on the film alongside Lucky McKee (The Woman). It begins principal photography August 1st 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).

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.
