Warren-Jeffs-Movie to film in New MexicoGuardianuk

A long planned film project centered on polygamist FLDS Church leader Warren Jeffs could be headed to shoot in New Mexico.

The Lifetime movie will tell the story of how leadership of the polygamist sect of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was taken-up by then 42 year old Warren Jeffs when his 92 year old father died in 2002. In the events that followed, Warren’s authoritarian leadership and his ever-expanding collection of underage wives began to attract the attention of outside law enforcement agencies, who regarded Warren as a common child molester. The movie will paint the picture of how Warren’s church and his life are ultimately destroyed by the forces of the law.

Production is expected to begin in northern New Mexico this April.
