Remember John Allen Williams? The man who carried out those sniper attacks in Virginia, Maryland and Washington D.C? According to a source, former ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ actor/author Isaiah Washington is slated to play the D.C. Sniper in a new film:
Isaiah Washington is set to star in Blue Caprice, a thriller about the sniper attacks that terrorized the Washington DC area in October 2002. Alexandre Moors is directing the project. Washington will play John Allen Williams, who joined the Nation of Islam and changed his surname to Muhammad years before going on a shooting spree with a young accomplice, Lee Boyd Malvo, that took the lives of at least ten people. The pair was caught after the authorities informed the public to look for a former police car. Williams was eventually tried, convicted and executed in 2009. [Source]
No word on who will be playing his accomplice, Lee Boyd Malvo but the film will start shooting sometime next month in New York City. A part of me is wondering why in the world they’re making a movie about this.
As many of you know, John Allen was executed back in 2009 for his crimes and Lee Boyd Malvo is currently serving life in prison.
