Spiderman fame Andrew Garfield is back with a new true-crime thriller series titled Under the Banner of Heaven, based on the Jon Krakauer book of the same name.
The series tells the true story of a double murder committed by two fundamentalist Mormons in the 1980s. A devout detective’s faith is tested as he investigates a brutal murder seemingly connected to an esteemed Utah family’s spiral into LDS fundamentalism and their distrust in the government.
The series also stars Daisy Edgar-Jones, Sam Worthington, Denise Gough, Wyatt Russell, Billy Howle, Gil Birmingham, Adelaide Clemens, and Rory Culkin.
Based on the true story of a double murder committed in the name of God by the brothers Ron and Dan Lafferty, who subscribed to a fundamentalist version of Mormonism, the series is directed by David Mackenzie and Thomas Schlamme.
Screenplays are adapted by Dustin Lance Black, from the book “Under the Banner of Heaven: A Story of Violent Faith” by author Jon Krakauer.
FX will debut a series on Hulu from mid-2022.
