The number of films, a part of their annual “Summer of Secrets” series, will start with “Gone Mom” on June 5, which is in line with the Jennifer Dulos situation, an announcement states.

He was slapped with murder charges before he died by suicide in January 2020.
Annabeth Gish, noted for her roles in “The X-Files,” “Pretty Little Liars,” and “Mystic Pizza,” is going to be playing Jennifer Dulos.
The film title refers back to the questionable “Gone Girl” theory that Fotis’ attorney Norm Pattis floated a month following the mother of 5 disappeared. Pattis hinted that Jennifer Dulos might have orchestrated her very own disappearance to be able to frame her husband — a salacious claim first reported by the brand new You are able to Publish. He noted that they once authored a magazine manuscript having a similar plot to Gillian Flynn’s 2012 novel “Gone Girl.” A spokesperson for Jennifer Dulos’s family and buddies has consistently denounced the suggestion that they staged her very own disappearance.
