A poster has been unveiled for the serial killer thriller To Catch a Killer, starring Shailene Woodley and reaching theatres in April
Three weeks ago, we saw a trailer for the serial killer thriller To Catch a Killer, which is set to receive a theatrical release on April 21st. Now a poster for the film has arrived online, and you can take a look at that at the bottom of this article.
To Catch a Killer is a project we first heard about way back in May of 2019, which is when Shailene Woodley (Divergent) signed on to star in and produce the film. More than a year and a half later, Ben Mendelsohn (Captain Marvel) and Jovan Adepo (the Watchmen TV series) were cast alongside Woodley. That was right before production began on the film that was then known as Misanthrope. Two more years down the line, it’s finally ready to make its way out into the world.
Directed by Damian Szifron from a script he wrote with Jonathan Wakeham, To Catch a Killer has the following synopsis: A modern-day Clarice Starling, Eleanor (Shailene Woodley) is a young police investigator wrestling with the demons of her past when she is recruited by the FBI’s chief investigator (Ben Mendelsohn) to help profile and track the work of a disturbed individual. As the police and FBI launch a nationwide manhunt, they are thwarted at every turn by the individual’s unprecedented behavior. Given her tortured psyche, Eleanor may be the only person who can understand the mind of their assailant and bring him to justice.
Woodley and Szifron produced the film with Stuart Manashil and FilmNation Entertainment’s Aaron Ryder. FilmNation financed the production, and the company’s CEO Glen Basner believes this could be “a decade defining film”.
Woodley explained what drew her to To Catch a Killer: “Screenplays like this, that are this well executed both in theme and tone, are rare to come by with a director like Damian behind the wheel. I have complete trust we will create something that will have a profound impact on cinema and will resonate with audiences, especially given the times we are living in right now. I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this team.“
