FilmDistrict has acquired screenwriter Ben Ketai's script The Last Word for distribution.
The horror-thriller, based on actual events, is set during the aftermath of a Texas murder trial, where a young man was wrongly convicted and executed for the rape and murder of a nun. The story follows the tragic consequences of those who participated in the trial. Here's what producer Frank Mancuso Jr. had to say in a statement.
"'Based on a true story has been overused as a marketing ploy however this film will scorch an indelible imprint on those who see it. The powerful words of this dying man will never be forgotten."
