William Forsythe portrays notorious serial killer John Wayne Gacy in this EXCLUSIVE scene from the upcoming "Dear Mr. Gacy."
A true story from Clark Peterson, producer of Monster, with a screenplay by Kellie Madison, this drama is based on the experiences of 18-year-old college student Jason Moss, played by Jesse Moss (no relation), and his relationship with notorious serial killer John Wayne Gacy.
Living at home with his parents in suburbia, attending college and dating his girlfriend, Jason lives a seemingly normal life. An overachiever, he’s always looking for a challenge and some new way to excel. As part of a school assignment, he sends a carefully crafted letter to John Gacy in prison, portraying himself as a vulnerable kid. Gacy, suspicious at first, puts Moss through harrowing emotional tests via phone and letters, before surrendering his trust to him.
What follows is a twisted psychological game of cat and mouse between two master manipulators, in which Jason’s life is turned upside down and Gacy discovers new dimensions within himself. When Gacy invites Jason to visit him in prison for a private meeting, Jason accepts. Nobody, certainly not Jason, could have predicted what would unfold inside the maximum security cell.
The film, directed by Svetozar Ristovski (Mirage / Iluzija) also stars Jesse Moss (The Uninvited) as Jason Moss.
The film follows the book "The Last Victim: A True-Life Journey into the Mind of the Serial Killer" (1999), in which Jason Moss details his fascination and subsequent correspondence with several famous American serial killers, aside from Gacy. Psychotherapist and best selling author Jeffrey A. Kottler, one of Moss’s UNLV instructors, contributes both a prologue and an afterword.
Sadly, the title took on new meaning when Jason Moss committed suicide in his Henderson, Nevada home on the morning of June 6, 2006. At the time of his death, he was a practicing criminal defense attorney.
