The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot Gains a Conjuring Star


Epic Pictures Group’s The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot has gained three new stars: Ron Livingston (The Conjuring, Office Space), Larry Miller (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Bayou Ghost), and Rizwan Manji (The Dictator, The Wolf of Wall Street). They join Aidan Turner and Sam Elliot, who will be playing the young and old versions, respectively, of lead character Calvin Barr.

Epic Pictures’ Shaked Berenson and Patrick Ewald will act as producers on the film alongside Lucky McKee (The Woman). It is currently in the middle of its production 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.
