Bill Skarsgard to headline true-crime drama Gilded Rage
Charlie McDowell has written the script of Gilded Rage, and will be directing the film.
Actor Bill Skarsgard is set to star in the crime drama, Gilded Rage, which is produced by Jake Gyllenhaal and Riva Marker under their banner, Nine Stories.
Co-produced by Jeremy Steckler of Conde Nast Entertainment, Charlie McDowell has written the script of Gilded Rage, and will be directing the film.
Gilded Rage 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 until an investigation proved otherwise.
Skarsgard will play Thomas Gilbert Jr, who was arrested for the crime and is still awaiting trial to this day. Gilbert originally pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder, but he has resisted subsequent plea deals, while his mother foots the bill for his defense.
