Newest articles on Belle Gunness:Edward Bass to direct Belle Gunness movie
Los Angeles- Producer Edward Bass is making his directorial debut with “Belle,” the story of Belle Gunness, America’s most prolific female serial killer, which is being produced and financed by First Line Media.
Working mainly from her farm base in La Porte County, Ind., around the turn of the 20th century, Gunness left a trail of buried bodies as she allegedly killed two husbands and dozens of suitors to whom she wrote love letters and who arrived at her farm with fat wallets. Several of her stepchildren mysteriously disappeared as well. Bass co-wrote the script with Eva Mayer, whose family purchased the farmland and discovered some of the love letters. It’s a classic theme: a woman looking for love and never quite finding it,” Bass said. “And when she finally does find love, it eludes her.”
