Russo Bros Wanted to Shoot 'Infinity War' in Cleveland

Cleveland filmmakers take on Torso murders in 'The Kingsbury Run'

The Cleveland Torso murders is a true crime tale at its gruesomest. The city is scarred by its dark legacy. Only the Sam Sheppard mystery (which was reimagined as The Fugitive) and the more recent escape of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight from kidnapper Ariel Castro possibly top it.

The Torso murders occurred primarily in the 1930s, though recent evidence suggests the serial killer - who was never captured or identified - took victims through the 1950s. Victims were drifters, often Depression-era working class folks who lived in shanty towns in Cleveland’s Flats. As the name implies, only the torsos of many victims were discovered.

Now a group of Cleveland filmmakers are retelling the story, set in modern day Cleveland. With a copycat killer on the loose, a private investigator (Deanna Sherman) teams up with a retired detective (B.R. Tatalovic) to stop the madness.

We caught up with filmmakers Kurt Broz and James Neyman to talk a little bit about The Kingsbury Run.
