Scott Foley to pick up a knife again in true crime murder flick Final Vision

Scott Foley Final Vision Dave Annable

Actor Scott Foley has made a name for himself in TV shows like Scrubs, Felicity, and - more recently - Scandal, but many people forget he also held a major role in the 2000 Wes Craven slasher SCREAM 3. He will be returning to deadly genre territory in the upcoming true crime TV movie FINAL VISION, based on the real life killer Jeffrey MacDonald.

The script was written by Denis O’Neill and will enter production this month with an eye on a 2017 premiere.

In FINAL VISION, Foley will play:

MacDonald, who was convicted of brutally murdering his pregnant wife and two young daughters in the middle of the night. The television movie will be told through the eyes of bestselling author Joe McGinniss (Dave Annable, 666 Park Avenue) who was asked by MacDonald to write a book about his “personal nightmare” as he claimed he was flasely accused and was about to go on trial.

The film begins as a story about an innocent man being railroaded by a flawed legal system, then taking viewers through a twisted psychological thriller that exposes a sinister man, behind a charming and heroic façade. In real life, the MacDonald case is the longest-running criminal case in U.S. history.

FINAL VISION will be the first of a five-part true crime series developed by Investigation Discovery and Lincoln Square Productions.
