RLJE plans to release the film domestically in theaters, VOD and Digital HD in the first quarter of 2019. Robert Krzykowski makes his directorial debut with the indie about a legendary American war veteran named Calvin Barr who, decades after serving in the Second World War 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. The film, which had a world premiere at the Fantasia Film Festival, also stars Caitlin Fitzgerald, Larry Miller and Ellar Coltrane.
“The film’s unique plot will spark great curiosity among audiences,” said Mark Ward, chief acquisitions officer for RLJE Films, in a statement.
The film is produced by Krzykowski, Patrick Ewald, Lucky McKee and Shaked Berenson and is executive produced by Oscar nominee John Sayles, Oscar-winning filmmaker Douglas Trumbull, Louise Lovegrove, Giles Daoust, Catherine Dumonceaux, Deborah Shriver and John Shriver.
