Breakthrough Entertainment, 5’7 Films To Release New Film ‘Faking A Murderer’September 25, 2020
5’7 Films, the filmmaking team behind the horror flick Scarecrows and the Netflix documentary hit Jack of All Trades, has joined forces once again with Breakthrough Entertainment to release their new film Faking A Murderer this fall.
In search of their next hit series, two filmmakers embark on an investigation to find a man they believe to be a serial killer. Are they in over their heads? Yes.
Director Stu Stone and producer Adam Rodness are helming the project, and this time the two filmmakers appear in front of the camera as well as behind it. After discovering a chilling video on-line that seemingly includes a murder confession, Stone and Rodness assemble their team to investigate this unreal true crime story that lurks somewhere in the rural countryside. Now, the footage has been assembled into a feature-length presentation that captures the origins of their investigation, the absurd moments they experience, and the harrowing stakes that continue to rise as they close in on their target.
“As a die-hard fan of the true-crime genre, I knew this would be an exciting project for 5’7 Films to take on next,” states Stone. “While investigating baseball cards for our documentary Jack of All Trades, we successfully managed to track a lot of people down to get the answers we needed. We figured that finding a killer would be a bold new mission for us and a huge challenge. We were right.” Rodness concurs. “We’ve obviously filmed some horror movies over the years and after we had the success on Netflix with Jack of All Trades, the next logical step for us as filmmakers was to investigate… murder. This film captures that process in its entirety.”
“When you take a look at Adam and Stu’s body of work, you get a real sense of how committed they are to the filmmaking process, regardless of the genre or format,” states Breakthrough Entertainment’s Feature Film Co-ordinator Chris Benn. “The footage they’ve captured in Faking A Murderer is a raw look at that process and fans of mystery and suspense are going to want to check it out from start to finish.”
