Michael Sheen is writing and directing The Green River Killer, based on the true story...
Michael Sheen will make his feature directorial debut and star in the upcoming true crime thriller Green River Killer, about the most prolific American serial killer in history, based on confirmed murders. The star of Masters of Sex also wrote the screenplay, based on Dark Horse Entertainment’s graphic novel Green River Killer: A True Detective Story, which in turn was written by the lead investigator’s son Jeff Jensen, and illustrated by artist Jonathan Case.
The Green River Killer, Gary Leon Ridgway, strangled at least 49 women in Washington State during the 1980s and 1990s. Ridgeway got his nickname after the first five victims were found in the Green River. Detective Tom Jensen worked the case from 1984 to 2001, first as part of a task force and then as the only full-time investigator.
