Sam Elliott is The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot

Sam Elliott

One of my favorite actors is Sam Elliott, who I grew up watching in multiple films. One of my favorite childhood memories is of seeing ROAD HOUSE at a drive-in one rainy night in 1989. I've always enjoyed Elliott's screen presence and awesome voice, but I never expected that someday I'd be watching him act in a movie called THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT.

Such a viewing is in my future, though, as Elliott has signed on to star in a film with just that title for writer/director Robert Krzykowski. He will, of course, be playing the man in question, because you can't have Sam Elliott in a movie where a man kills Hitler and Bigfoot and not have him be that man. 

The story of this film with the staggering title follows 

a legendary American war veteran named Calvin Barr 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.

Bigfoot is real, and it's apparently a bigger germ farm than that monkey in OUTBREAK. Don't worry, Sam Elliott has this situation under control.

THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT is expected to begin filming in August. It's being produced by Krzykowski, Patrick Ewald, Shaked Berenson, and genre regular Lucky McKee (MAY, THE WOODS, THE WOMAN, ALL CHEERLEADERS DIE), with the great John Sayles (PIRANHA, ALLIGATOR, THE HOWLING) executive producing.
