Are you ready to spend your summer with two hotties and a chimp?
The upcoming thriller He Went That Way stars Zachary Quinto and Jacob Elordi in the stranger-than-fiction, real-life tale of celebrity animal trainer Dave Pitts and his famous TV chimp Spanky as the two traveled across the country in 1964 with the Ice Capades. While on the trip, they had a harrowing three-day encounter with a young serial killer named Larry Lee Ranes.
Quinto will be playing Jim Goodwin, an animal trainer based on Pitts, and Elordi will be playing Bobby Falls, a killer based on Ranes.
This is one of our most anticipated movies of the year. Quinto and Elordi, a serial killer and a famous chimpanzee? That’s a recipe for success! Now, we know when it will premiere, as it was announced as a part of the Tribeca Film Festival slate, taking place June 7-18.
