New Zealand's Scott Walker wrote and will direct the feature, marking his directorial debut.
Robert Hansen, a respected family man, systematically abducted some two dozen women and flew them into the Alaskan wilderness where he released and then hunted them down. The story will follow a trooper who finds one of Hansen's victims alive on the street who becomes the key in an unlikely partnership that brings Hansen to justice.
Hansen was arrested in 1983 and charged with four murders and, as part of a plea bargain, agreed to show police where the graves of the murdered women were. He was sentenced to 461 years in prison and is currently imprisoned at Spring Creek Correctional Center in Alaska.
Production is set to start October 10 in Anchorage.
