The film will be scripted and directed by filmmaker Charlie McDowell. The production will be helmed by Hollywood actor Jake Gyllenhaal and Riva Marker.
The film is based on Benjamin Wallace's Vanity Fair article about the infamous murder of Investment banker Thomas
Gilbert Sr, whose death was originally believed to be a suicide. However, a deeper investigation ended up proving otherwise.
The film will feature Skarsgard in the role of Thomas Gilbert Jr, who was arrested for the crime and after all these years is still awaiting trial, Variety reports.
