Peters told in April Variety about the painstaking task he took to research Dahmer in depth for the role.

“I’ve read so much, I’ve seen so much, I’ve seen so much, and at some point you have to say, ‘Okay, that’s enough,'” he said. ‘There are beautifully written scripts. You can have all the backstory you want, but in the end we don’t make a documentary.

‘It’s more about keeping the idea and the continuous line of why you’re telling the story and always have that as a guideline.’

Dahmer was convicted in 1992 of 16 murders of which he was charged and sentenced to 16 life sentences. He was beaten to death with a metal bar in November 1994 by Christopher Scarver, another inmate at the Columbia Correctional Institution in Portage, Wisconsin.
