Tonight, I’m excited to talk to award-winning filmmaker Matthew Gentile. Matthew is the writer and director of American Murderer, coming to theaters on October 28th.
American Murderer is based on the true story of Jason Derek Brown – a charismatic con man turned party king who bankrolls his luxurious lifestyle through a series of scams. When his funds run low and his past catches up with him, he plots his most elaborate scheme yet and, in the process, becomes the FBI’s most unlikely – and elusive – top ten fugitive.
AMERICAN MURDERER stars Tom Pelphrey, Ryan Phillippe, Idina Menzel, Jacki Weaver, Shantel Vansanten, Paul Schneider, Moises Arias, and Kevin Corrigan. Traveling Picture Show Company produced the film with Gigi Films, Productivity Media Inc, and Radiant Films International.
I got to screen American Murderer and I can tell you this movie is solid. Tom Pelphrey plays a fantastic bad guy. Stream it or go see it, October 28th!
