Armie Hammer has been in the limelight ever since an anonymous Instagram account accused the actor of sexual harassment and cannibalism. The actor has been removed from several projects, and is being questioned by the police officials about the case. While Hammer has always denied the allegations and stated that the accusations are being made just to malign his image, his aunt is all set to reveal all the dirty secrets of the family.
Casey Hammer, the granddaughter of Armand Hammer, is set to reveal the family’s secrets in a limited documentary series. Several reports suggest that Casey Hammer has signed an exclusive deal with Talos Films to work on a docuseries about the Hammer family. Talos Film has earlier backed projects like Discovery+’s Queen of Meth and Disney+’s Family Reboot. The production company is currently shopping the project to broadcasters and streamers.
It is said that Hammer’s aunt will be giving the audience an insight into the lives of the notorious Hammer family. Interestingly, Armie Hammer is not the first one to have a scandalous history in the family. His great-great-grandfather, Dr Julius Hammer was sentenced for first-degree manslaughter. He had murdered the wife of a Russian diplomat, whom he gave an abortion. Julian Hammer, the son of Armand Hammer was also accused of killing a man inside his Los Angeles home over a gambling debt.
Talos Films co-founders Elli Hakami and Julian P. Hobbs revealed, “The Hammer family history is like Succession on steroids. A dysfunctional dynasty with its male characters exhibiting all the devastating consequences of privilege gone wild. Now, for the first time, Casey Hammer will tell not just her story, but the definitive family history, leaving no stone unturned. 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 Hammer added, “As a survivor I want to help empower others to speak up and know that they are heard.” She has a self-published 2015 book titled Surviving My Birthright where she already has talked about how Julian Hammer used to sexually abuse her when she was a child, and how he was abusive to others in the family. The docuseries will also feature reckonings from other survivors who have recently come forward, and exposed the family.
