An independent filmmaker says he will tackle the gruesome and controversial case of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, a Philadelphia abortion doctor serving life in prison after multiple convictions on first-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter and the snipping of the babies necks inside his House of Horrors abortion clinic in Philadelphia, reports Hollywood Reporter.

From the article:
The filmmaker, Phelim McAleer, says he will explore not only Gosnell’s actions — he calls Gosnell “America’s biggest serial killer” — but also what he says is the bureaucratic and media inattention that allowed them to continue until his arrest in 2011.

McAleer’s project is to be produced by his Hat Tip Productions as a television movie that he will pitch to various cable TV channels. He’s attempting to raise $2.1 million at IndieGoGo for its financing. If he is successful, his would be the biggest crowdfunding campaign ever at IndieGoGo.

Gosnell the Movie: Kermit Gosnell, the most prolific serial killer in American history

McAleer says Hollywood, too, is biased against the story, pointing out that there have been multiple movies made about serial killers like Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy, Jeffrey Dahmer and the Zodiac Killer.

“The Jodi Arias trial ended at the same time as Gosnell and a film was on TV within nine months. The L.A.-based serial killer the Grim Sleeper has just had a movie on Lifetime and he has not been convicted yet,” McAleer says. “You’re more likely to find Hollywood executives at a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood than trawling the media for stories such as Kermit Gosnell.”

McAleer says he may still option a book about Gosnell, but the grand jury report is easily a compelling enough account for a TV movie.

Teen Charged With Murder In Brother’s Death -Felt Hunger To Kill

Prosecutors: Ind. Teen Felt Hunger To Kill
Teen Charged With Murder In Brother’s Death

RISING SUN, Ind. —


An Indiana teen accused of murdering his 10-year-old brother said he strongly related to a fictional serial killer and felt a hunger to kill, prosecutors said.

Andrew Conley walked into the Rising Sun Police Department on Sunday and told officers he’d killed his brother, Conner Conley, the previous evening, investigators said.

The 17-year-old told police they had been wrestling while their parents worked night-shift jobs and he placed Conner in a headlock until the boy lost consciousness and fell to the floor.

Conley told police he noticed blood coming from his brother’s face, prosecutors said, and he dragged the boy into the kitchen and put on a pair of gloves.

Prosecutors said the teen then admitted to choking his brother until he was sure the boy was dead.
He then placed a plastic bag over the boy’s head and sealed it off with electrical tape, dragged his body outside, and then struck his brother’s head against the ground before tossing the body in the trunk of a car, prosecutors said.

Under Indiana law, any 16- or 17-year-old charged with murder has their case automatically moved to adult court, where Conley made his first appearance Friday afternoon.

After strangling his brother, Conley went upstairs to the bedroom he’d shared with Conner to change his bloody sweatshirt and hide the gloves in a closet, investigators said.

Prosecutors said Conley admitted to police that he’d fantasized about killing someone since he was in eighth grade, and compared himself to a fictional serial killer on a cable television series.

“Andrew stated that he watches a show called ‘Dexter’ on Showtime, about a serial killer,” prosecutors said in an affidavit. “He stated, ‘I feel just like him.'”

Prosecutors said Andrew Conley then drove to his girlfriend’s house, with his brother’s body still in the car’s trunk, and unexpectedly gave her a sweetheart ring during a visit that lasted about three hours.

“According to (his girlfriend), during that visit Andrew ‘seemed happy, more happy than she had seen him in a while,'” prosecutors said.

The girlfriend’s brother told News 5’s Brian Hamrick that she had thrown the ring into a pond behind the family’s home.

Investigators said Conley dumped his brother’s body behind a recycling bin behind Ohio County Elementary School, where the boy attended fifth grade, and covered the remains slightly with some brush.

When asked why he’d killed his brother, prosecutors said Conley said he’d felt compelled to take his life.

“Like I had to … like when people have something like they are hungry and there is a hamburger sitting there and they knew they had to have it and I was sitting there and it just happened,” prosecutors said Conley told them.

Conley told investigators his brother begged him to stop as he strangled him.
“He spoke with no emotion, no remorse when speaking of his brother,” said Aaron Negangard, prosecutor for Dearborn and Ohio counties.

Prosecutors said Conley also intended to kill his father, who said he awoke Sunday morning to find his son standing over him with a knife.

Conley took two friends to the park where he’d dumped his brother’s body, prosecutors said, but they were unable to locate the remains.

Prosecutors initially charged Conley Monday with battery causing serious injury and taken into police custody at the Dearborn County Juvenile Detention Center, but he was be transferred late Thursday to the Switzerland County Jail.
