Filmmakers are shooting a movie about an FBI agent who pleaded guilty in Kentucky to strangling an informant in 1989.

The film, “Above Suspicion,” is about Mark Putnam, who was convicted of first-degree manslaughter in the death of Susan Daniels Smith, a lover at the time, the Associated Press reports. 

At least two books were written about the killing.

The filming will take place in areas around Lexington and Harlan.
