The producer of Charlize Theron’s ‘Monster’ is turning once again to real-life serial killers by preparing new movie ‘Dear Mr Gacy’ based on the memoir ‘The Last Victim’ by Jason Moss. The movie is based on serial killer John Wayne Gacy who was convicted and later executed for the rape and murder of 33 boys and young men between 1972 and his arrest in 1978. Actor William Forsythe (‘The Devil’s Rejects’ and ‘Halloween’) has been selected to play the title role.
Jason Moss corresponded with Gacy in 1994, which was killer’s final year. Moss eventually met Gacy on Death Row and even narrowly escaped an attack by him… His book has been described by critics as a real-life ‘Silence of the Lambs’.
Director Svetozar Ristovski will begin the shoot on the project in Vancouver later this month. Actor Jesse Moss will take on Jason’s part.
