Fort Gay, West Virginia, USA
Fan Films Productions, in association with Rose Mikaelson Productions and Mikaelson Studios, is producing, distributing and releasing an upcoming horror/crime/docudrama/thriller feature film called ‘A Charming Killer’. The film is based on a true story and tells the life story of Theodore Robert Bundy, known as Ted Bundy.
Taking place from the 1940’s to the 1980’s, Ted Bundy goes on a cross country killing spree, murdering young girls and women. During this time, he attends college, falls in love, finds out the truth about his parentage and gets a job working at the Seattle Suicide Crisis Hotline Center, where he meets and works alongside former police officer and aspiring true crime writer, Ann Rule. Ted and Ann soon become friends. Even though Ann is a former police officer, she works alongside the task force on the unsolved missing person cases and unsolved murders, unaware that her friend Ted is responsible for the crimes. No one that knows Ted suspects he is responsible for the crimes, but when he is arrested for the first time, everyone begins to wonders if he could be responsible for the crimes.
The film was developed in the small town of Fort Gay, West Virginia in November 2016 by Matty Bates and Rose Mikaelson. Matty Bates is a new and upcoming director and screenwriter and Rose Mikaelson is a new and upcoming actress and model. Rose Mikaelson is the creator of the film. She came up with the idea for the movie and enlisted the help of her friend Matty Bates to write the screenplay. Rose Mikaelson was going to be the director, but in December 2016, she decided to let her friend and co-screenwriter Matty Bates be the director. As of right now, and because the film is in the early stages of preproduction, Matty Bates and Rose Mikaelson are the only crew members on the film.
The film takes place from the 1940’s to the 1980’s, all of the props, vehicles and costumes on the film will be vintage. Matty Bates is the director and co-screenwriter on the film and Rose Mikaelson is the casting director, co-screenwriter, producer and part of the cast.
