It was only a matter of time before someone pitched a documentary about Armie Hammer and his family and that time is now, because his very own aunt is set to reveal the family’s secrets in a new limited series.
According to industry publication Deadline, Casey Hammer has signed an exclusive deal to develop a documentary series about her family.
It’s currently being shopped around to broadcasters and streaming services.
Casey Hammer played an integral part in that Vanity Fair exposé about her nephew. It basically traced the actor’s rise and fall in Hollywood, as well as his family’s dark history.
Armie is being investigated by the LAPD after a woman accused the actor of sexually assaulting her in Los Angeles on April 24, 2017.
Prior to that, Hammer was accused of sexual violence and language after a number of graphic DMs between himself and multiple women resurfaced on social media in January this year.
Estranged from her family, Casey now works as a kitchen designer at Home Depot in San Diego. In her self-published book, Surviving My Birthright (2015), she alleged that her father, Julian Armand Hammer, sexually abused her when she was a child.
“Now, for the first time, Casey Hammer will tell not just her story, but the definitive family history, leaving no stone unturned,” the doco synopsis reads.
“With new unfolding revelations and present-day consequences, this mini-series will provide audiences with a riveting journey into a family where reputation is everything and where things are never how they appear.”
Casey has always been vocal about her family and their alleged treatment of her in the past. In the Vanity Fair article, she claimed she received a text from a long-time family friend, who warned her about speaking so openly about the family.
“Don’t go out after dark,” the woman texted her.
“If you do, go in a group. Park under a light and near a store entrance.”
Over the past few months, Armie has exited or been dropped from all of his upcoming projects, including Shotgun Wedding, co-starring Jennifer Lopez, and The Offer, a series about the making of The Godfather.
Downton Abbey star Dan Stevens eventually replaced him in Gaslit, a series starring Julia Roberts, and days later, Armie announced he had left Broadway production, The Minutes.
