Academy Award-winning filmmaker Kathryn Bigelow and Annapurna Pictures are reteaming on a film based on the non-fiction book The True American by New York Times journalist Anand Giridharadas. Tom Hardy is set to star while Bigelow will direct and produce the film through her production shingle, First Light. Annapurna’s Megan Ellison, who previously worked with Bigelow as a producer on Zero Dark Thirty, is set to produce. Annapurna’s Matthew Budman will serve as Executive Producer.

The True American meticulously reconstructs two lives that collided in horrific fashion. In the charged, angry days after 9/11, self-styled "American Terrorist" Mark Stroman murdered two immigrants in Texas, while a third man survived being shot in the head during Stroman’s spree: Raisuddin Bhuiyan, a Bangladesh Air Force veteran, was working at a Dallas-area convenience store as he established himself in America.

With Stroman identified and apprehended, the tale begins its tack toward deeper emotional waters. The True American is a richly detailed, affecting account of two men bound, as it turns out, by more than just an act of violence.
