Peapie Films and Anonymous Content are planning the feature “Repent,” based on the true story of a Swedish man who falsely confessed to being a serial killer.
In the 1990s, Thomas Quick admitted to thirty killings and was imprisoned for eight of them. In 2001 it came to light that he had made up the whole story.
Agnieszka Lukasiak (“Between Two Fires”), who spent her early years as a documentarian interviewing Quick, will pen and helm the film. The story will be told through the eyes of an investigative journalist who unearths the complex reality behind his lies and confessions.
