Nanette Burstein's new film will have its world premiere Sunday before heading to Showtime.

John McAfee — developer of the anti-virus software that bears his name, suspect in a 2012 murder in Belize and a candidate for the Libertarian Party’s 2016 presidential nomination — is the subject of the new documentary Gringo: The Dangerous Life of John McAfee, which will have its world premiere Sunday at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The film is directed by Nanette Burstein, an Oscar nominee for the 1999 doc On the Ropes, whose credits also include 2002’s The Kid Stays in the Picture and 2008’s American Teen. And it promises to reveal new details about the unsolved murder investigation in which McAfee was involved.

Gringo, an Ish Entertainment production, was produced by Chi-Young Park and executive produced by Michael Hirschorn, Jeff Wise and Wendy Roth. Showtime Documentary Films will begin airing the film on the cable channel beginning Sept. 24.

A first look at the documentary’s trailer is below.
