A Nightmare on Elm Street’s Ken Sagoes has made a major leap in his crusade to turn his story The McHenry Trial into a motion picture. Last year we spoke with Ken about his plans to migrate an important story from page to screen, but it was just this week that the first manifestations of that journey became a reality.
Yesterday a trailer for the short film version of his novel has been released! At launch Ken had the following to say:
It’s the story of a young and brilliant academic phenom who not only passes the bar exam at age 14 but finds himself defending his homeless father on a murder charge when few believe he is innocent. He faces a shrewd law firm, an old school segregationist judge, and an arrogant prosecutor who is preparing to celebrate his 50th consecutive case win. Within 12 hours it’s been invited to over 100 film festivals around the world.
Here’s the first trailer for The McHenry Trial:
