Army Hammer abuse allegations, family scandals to be focused on True-Crime Special

A Project Armie Hammer won’t break out of last year’s wave of bizarre cannibalism and abuse claims is an upcoming true-crime documentary special.

The fall of the controversial “Call Me By Your Name” star will be the focus of a special that promises to also examine the “dark, twisted legacy of the Hammer family lineage.”

Hammer’s career went into a tailspin in January 2021 amid allegations of abuse by several women who shared disturbing text messages detailing violent sexual acts, including rape and cannibalism.

The actor has since been accused of rape and physical abuse by a woman with whom he was in a relationship. Hammer has vehemently denied the allegations.

The backlash resulted in Hammer being dropped by his talent agency and out of a handful of high-profile projects, including the upcoming rom-com “Shotgun Wedding” and a role opposite Jennifer Lopez in the Paramount+ series “The Offer”.

In a statement to Variety at the time, Hammer said: “I am not responding to these nonsense claims, but in light of the vicious and fake online attacks against me, I am in good conscience now shooting my children for four months.” Can’t leave to film in the Dominican Republic. Lionsgate is supporting me in this and I am grateful to them.”

The slate of ID and Discovery+ also includes specials that will investigate the Menendez brothers murder trial, the feud between Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls, Mary Kay Letourneau’s illicit student-teacher relationship, and the disappearance and death of Gabby Pettito.
