It was last summer when we last wrote about Epic Pictures Group’s period drama/monster movie The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot. Since then there has been little to speak of… until today. We’re incredibly excited to bring you your first look at the film with several images, all of which can be seen below, including the first image of the titular Bigfoot!
The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot features the incredible cast of Sam Elliott (The Big Lebowski, Ghost Rider), Aidan Turner (The Hobbit, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones), Ron Livingston (Office Space, The Conjuring), Caitlin FitzGerald (“UnREAL,” Manhattan Romance), Larry Miller (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang), and Ellar Coltrane (Boyhood, The Circle, Blood Money).
The story follows a legendary American war veteran named Calvin Barr, 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.
Written and directed by Robert D. Krzykowski, who produces alongside Patrick Ewald, Shaked Berenson, and Lucky McKee, the film is executive produced by John Sayles, Louise Lovegrove, and Douglas Trumbull (2001: A Space Odyssey, Close Encounters of the Third Kind) and features VFX overseen by three-time Academy Award nominated Richard Yuricich (Blade Runner, Event Horizon, Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey.)
