125 Years ago the world’s most notorious serial killer terrorized the streets of London, earning the name ‘Jack the Ripper’.
The horrific slayings and infamous unsolved case are being brought to life in a new adaptation, 7 Faces of Jack the Ripper, featuring Timothy Woodward, Jr., Jeremy London, Said Faraj, Antwon Tanner, Patrick Kilpatrick, Jerry G. Angelo, and Mindy Robinson.
This modern adaptation takes place in the streets of Los Angeles, where a copycat killer is not only inspired by a true story but also based in part on the actual psychiatric case files of a leading Jack the Ripper suspect which were recently made public by the mental institution where he was detained for years.
With the overwhelmingly positive response to recently released horror/thriller feature Finders Keepers: The Root of All Evil, and with the buzz surrounding the highly anticipated psychological thriller Blackout starring Timothy Woodward, Jr., and ‘Hollywood King of Horror’ Bill Oberst, Jr., Woodward has decided to continue his exploration of the horror genre with a grisly modern-day rendition of infamous serial killer Jack the Ripper.
The film, which Woodward both acts in and directs, has tentatively been titled 7 Faces of Jack the Ripper and has garnered a shockingly impressive cast. In addition to Woodward, the all-star cast includes Jeremy London (Mallrats, “Party of Five”), Antwon Tanner (“One Tree Hill”, Coach Carter), Said Faraj (The Green Zone), Patrick Kilpatrick (Minority Report), Matt Cinquanta (The Joker Returns), Mindy Robinson (Casting Couch), and Jerry G. Angelo (Spared).
The film, produced by Sky Studios International and Fireborn Studios, is aiming for a October 2013 release. It follows a homicide task force (Woodward, London, Kilpatrick, Faraj) as they hunt down an elusive serial killer with a flair for the dramatics and an obsession with the 125-year-old unsolved Jack the Ripper murders.
