RELATED: The Gray Man Review: A Fun but Unremarkable Action ThrillerBased on Charles Graeber’s 2014 novel of the same name, The Good Nurse is a true story that centers around the pursuit and capture of serial killer Charlie Cullen, who is also known as the “Angel of Death.” Cullen is one of the most prolific serial killers in history. He killed more than 300 patients over the course of 16 years, which were spread across nine hospitals in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The film will be led by Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne (The Danish Girl, Fantastic Beasts) as Charlie Cullen, who was caught by two former Newark homicide detectives with the help of Amy Loughren, who Jessica Chastain (Molly’s Game, Zero Dark Thirty) is set to portray. Loughren is a nurse and Cullen’s co-worker, whose bravery and dogged pursuit helped end the killing spree.RELATED: More Fear Street Movies in Development at NetflixThe Good Nurse will be directed by Danish writer-director Tobias Lindholm, which will mark his first time directing an English-language feature film.
