RLJE Films will be giving director Amber Sealey’s dramatic thriller No Man of God, starring Luke Kirby as infamous serial Ted Bundy and Elijah Wood as FBI Agent Bill Hagmaier, a theatrical and on demand release tomorrow, August 27th. In anticipation of the release, we’re able to share a clip from the film and you can check it out in the embed above. This gives us a look at Kirby and Wood as their characters, along with another character played by Aleksa Palladino.
Based on real transcripts and conversations between Bundy and Hagmaier, No Man of God has the following synopsis:
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. During the early days of the agency’s criminal profiling unit, FBI analyst Bill Hagmaier met with the incarcerated Ted Bundy in the hopes of understanding the psychology of the serial killer and providing closure for the victim’s families. As Hagmaier delves into Bundy’s dark and twisted mind, a strange and complicated relationship develops that neither man expected.
Kit Lesser wrote the screenplay. Robert Patrick is also in the cast.
Wood produced No Man of God with Daniel Noah, Lisa Whalen, and Kim Sherman. Whalen had this to say about the film:
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. RLJE Films immediately recognized what was special about this film. We’re thrilled to be working with them again.”
RLJE’s Mark Ward added:
No Man of God explores FBI agent Bill Hagmaier’s actual interrogation of Ted Bundy. A story that has never been told, No Man of God brings a new and revealing perspective to the Ted Bundy story.”
I’m looking forward to watching No Man of God. According to this Amazon listing, the film will be reaching Blu-ray and DVD on October 19th, and pre-orders are already being accepted.
