The Good Nurse trailer features Chastain’s character as she uncovers her close colleague’s dark secret involving the mysterious deaths of his patients. She teams up with the detectives trying to find evidence against Charlie Cullen in the hopes of proving his identity as the serial killer called the Angel of Death.
Based on Charles Graeber’s 2014 novel of the same name, The Good Nurse is a true story that centers around the pursuit and capture of serial killer Charlie Cullen, who is also known as the “Angel of Death.” Cullen is one of the most prolific serial killers in history. He killed more than 300 patients over the course of 16 years, which were spread across nine hospitals in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
The film will be led by Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne (The Danish Girl, Fantastic Beasts) as Charlie Cullen, who was caught by two former Newark homicide detectives with the help of Amy Loughren, who Jessica Chastain (Molly’s Game, Zero Dark Thirty) is set to portray. Loughren is a nurse and Cullen’s co-worker, and her bravery and dogged pursuit helped end the killing spree.
