Star Trek star Zachary Quinto has joined the cast for a forthcoming Netflix serial killer movie, titled He Went That Way.
Quinto will be joined by The Kissing Booth’s up-and-coming talent Jacob Elordi for the new crime thriller based on the life of the American serial killer Larry Lee Ranes and his three-day ordeal with Hollywood animal trainer Dave Pitts in 1964.
Pitts, who became the only surviving victim from Ranes’ spree, documented his tale which was later novelised in Conrad Hilberry’s book Luke Karamazov.
The film also has Evan M. Wiener and Jeffrey Darling lined up behind the camera as both writer and director respectively. Elordi will take on the role of Bobby Falls who is based on Ranes, while Quinto will play Jim Goodwin who is based on Pitts.
During the original horrific encounter, Pitts was supported by his trusty chimp companion Spanky known for his stellar work in Ice Capades movie. He will be expertly worked into the movie by Legacy Effects.
Jeffrey Darling recently told Deadline, “He Went That Way is undoubtedly a journey of curious tensions and bonds between two and at times three interesting characters all on their own path.”
With casting announcements still being made the project is unlikely to feature on Netflix any time soon, but we will continue to keep you updated with further announcements as and when they are made.
