Armie Hammer’s new lead is far from a comeback vehicle.
An upcoming true crime docuseries that focuses on the sexual assault allegations – and viral cannibalism claims – surrounding the actor is coming to Discovery+ and ID.
Now produced under the working title House of Hammer, the show will focus on the 35-year-old’s headline-grabbing allegations of sexual abuse, as well as his notorious family empire.
“Debauchery. Fraud. Abuse. Addiction. Corruption. Over the course of five generations, the men of the Hammer family have more secrets and scandals than any vault can hold,” read a statement released by the streaming platforms Armie Hammer crimes are just the tip of the iceberg.”
Among the meaty topics likely to be covered is Page Six’s Francesca Bacardi exclusively with Hammer’s ex Courtney Vucekovich, who made her jaw drop by her claim that Hammer wanted to “break my rib and grill it and eat it.”
“‘F–k that was weird,’ but you never think about it again,” app founder Vucekovich said at the time, explaining how she overlooked his odd behavior during their relationship. “He says, ‘I want to take a bite from you.’ If I had a small cut on my hand, he would happily suck or lick it. That’s about as weird as we got it.”
Meanwhile, the documentary will also delve into five generations of Hammer family mysteries, using “a treasure trove of archives and interviews from survivors and family members” to examine “a dysfunctional dynasty, with its male characters all wreaking havoc on wild men.” privileges,” according to the diversity report.
The “Social Network” star was also accused last year of “violently” raping a woman named Effie. He is also said to have sent graphic sexual messages about rape and cannibalism to several women. Hammer has since denied the reports against him.
Effie claimed Hammer “abused her mentally, emotionally and sexually throughout their four-year relationship,” the Sun reported when the news broke.
Hammer had previously cited a penchant for rough sex, but went on to claim that marrying his now ex-wife, Elizabeth Chambers, changed his tastes.
“I liked the neck grabbing and the hair grabbing and all that. But then you get married and your sexual appetite changes,” he told Playboy in 2013. “And I mean that for the better – it’s not that I’m suffering in any way. But you can’t really pull your wife’s hair. It gets to a point where you’re like, ‘I respect you too much to do these things that I kind of want to do.'”
He later blamed the overshare for drinking a little too much before the interview: “Let’s just say hindsight is 20/20,” Hammer told E! News. “Don’t drink during an interview.”
Hammer was later axed from projects such as the Jennifer Lopez comedy Shotgun Wedding, the Paramount+ miniseries The Offer, and the thriller Billion Dollar Spy. He was last seen in the ensemble mystery drama Death on the Nile in 2021.
She asked to be given primary physical custody of their children, Harper and Ford, with joint custody of Hammer in a 2020 divorce filing.
“Thirteen years as best friends, soul mates, partners and then parents. It’s been an incredible journey, but together we decided to turn the page and put our marriage behind us,” they shared on their two Instagram accounts at the time. “As we move into this next chapter, our children and our relationship as co-parents and dear friends will remain our priority.”
Hammer spent nine months in 2021 rejuvenating at a Florida rehab center. Last March, the “Call Me By Your Name” actor’s mother, Dru, was overheard by a Page Six insider saying he had “put in a great performance” over the past year.
Discovery+ will also release specials on other crime extravaganzas such as the Gabby Petito case, the Menendez brothers and the murders of rap gods Tupac Shakur and Notorious BIG
