Here’s a plot summary: “Set in 1964, the movie is based on the strange but true crime story of celebrity animal trainer Dave Pitts and his famous TV chimp, Spanky, centerpiece of the traveling extravaganza The Ice Capades, and his fateful three-day encounter with the serial killer Larry Lee Ranes.”

Zachary will play the character Jim Goodwin, based on Dave Pitts. Jacob will play serial killer Bobby Falls, based on Larry Lee Ranes.

The story is inspired by Conrad Hilberry’s book Luke Karamazov, as well as the real-life account from Dave Pitts, the sole survivor of the serial killer’s murder spree. Jeffrey Darling will make his feature debut as director.

Zippy the chimp, which will be based on Spanky, will be made up of “a fusion of a suited character actor and animatronics” created by Legacy Effects.

“He Went That Way is a undoubtedly a journey of curious tensions and bonds between two and at times three interesting characters all on their own path. A cinematic tale on the road across the U.S. in the early ’60s where people come with a rawness forged from the landscapes they inhabit. It is for our two leads Jacob and Zachary as well as myself, a great opportunity to explore with an improvised sensibility,” said the director in a statement.

Jacob‘s girlfriend Kaia Gerber recently made some rare comments about their relationship.
