It was announced that RLJE has picked up North American distribution rights for the new thriller starring Elijah Wood and Luke Kirby. In ‘No Man of God’ Elijah plays FBI Agent Bill Hagmaier who developed a complicated relationship with Ted Bundy who will be played by Luke Kirby.
Directed by Amber Sealey (No Light and No Land Anywhere), NO MAN OF GOD stars Elijah Wood (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy), Luke Kirby (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”), Aleksa Palladino (The Irishman) and Robert Patrick (Terminator 2) and was written by Kit Lesser.
“NO MAN OF GOD explores a familiar subject through a different lens. Through the brilliant direction of Amber Sealey, the film poses challenging questions about the dangers of our obsession with serial killers like Bundy,” Company X/SpectreVision CEO Lisa Whalen said. “RLJE Films immediately recognized what was special about this film. We’re thrilled to be working with them again.”
In 1980, Ted Bundy was sentenced to death by electrocution. In the years that followed, he agreed to disclose the details of his crimes, but only to one man. NO MAN OF GOD is based on the true story of the strange and complicated relationship that developed between FBI agent Bill Hagmaier (Wood) and an incarcerated Ted Bundy (Kirby) in the years leading to Bundy’s execution.
No Man of God is coming in August.
