‘Poldark’ star joins ‘The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot’ movie

It’s been announced that Poldark actor Aidan Turner will star in what is possibly the most ridiculously-titled movie project of the year.

Turner, who has played Ross Poldark in the BBC’s hit period drama since 2015, will begin filming The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot in the US in August.

Deadline reports that writer-director Robert D. Krzykowski’s movie will follow Calvin Barr, a legendary American war veteran who, decades after serving in WWII and assassinating Adolf Hitler, must now hunt down the fabled Bigfoot.

Living a peaceful life in New England, he is contacted by the FBI and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to lead the charge as the creature is carrying a deadly plague and is hidden deep inside the Canadian wilderness.

Aidan Turner will play the young Calvin Barr, while Sam Elliott (The Big Lebowski, Hulk) will play the older iteration of the character.

The third season of Poldark is currently airing on BBC One in the UK and will premiere in the US this October.
