Sam Elliott is going to be in a movie, from producer John Sayles and director Robert Krzykowski, called The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then Bigfoot. Is there really anything else you need to know to be excited for this one?
In case maybe you do, here’s a little plot from the Deadline report:
The story follows a legendary American war veteran named Calvin 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.
So, yeah, sounds pretty wild. But in all the best ways. The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then Bigfoot is the sort of movie we need more of, films with wildly imaginative originality. And Sam Elliott in the lead role is pretty kickass in and of itself.
There’s no other news surrounding cast or release date, but the movie will start shooting this August. Keep an eye out for (inhales) The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then Bigfoot.
