Casey Hammer is the granddaughter of Armand Hammer, who is Armie's great-grandfather. Casey — who is estranged from most of her family — signed on to develop the docuseries about the Hammer family that will "tell the definitive, inside story of the rise and fall of the notorious Hammer family, including its latest unfolding chapter," Deadline reported.

News of the docuseries comes after Armie dropped out of numerous projects following the shocking cannibal accusations, and later rape claims, that were made against him.

However, Armie's controversy was not the first to plague the family. Last month, Vanity Fair  published an in-depth profile on the Hammers, exposing shocking revelations about the troubled long line of men in the family

Hammer's great-great grandfather, Dr. Julius Hammer, was convicted of first-degree manslaughter after the wife of a Russian diplomat, whom he gave an abortion to, died. 

In addition, Julian Hammer, the son of Armand, killed a man inside his Los Angeles home over a gambling debt. Casey also alleged — in her self-published 2015 book Surviving My Birthright — that Julian sexually abused her when she was a child, as well as abused others in the family.

As for Armie, he made headlines earlier this year after the Instagram account House of Effie leaked messages (that have not been verified) discussing violent fantasies and cannibalism, that were allegedly between the Hollywood star and an unnamed woman.

Then, last month, Effie Angelova, the woman behind the Instagram account House of Effie, came forward, accusing Hammer of rape and physical abuse in an incident that she claimed occurred in 2017, OK! reported.

Hammer "violently raped me for over four hours in Los Angeles, during which he repeatedly slammed my head against a wall, bruising my face," Angelova alleged during a press conference, adding that she "thought he was going to kill me." According to Angelova, she "tried to get away but he wouldn't let me."

Angelova's alleged affair with Hammer took place while he was married to estranged wife Elizabeth Chambers, who reportedly filed for divorce last summer after 13 years together.

Following the initial unverified DMs posted in January, a slew of women came forward to speak out against his apparent violent sexual predilections.

Former flame Paige Lorenze, who was linked to Hammer from September-December, claimed the Call Me By Your Name star used a knife to carve the letter “A” above her pubic area and introduced her to BDSM. She also claimed Hammer wanted a doctor to "remove [her] ribs" to "smoke and eat them." 

"I think he really has a desire to hurt women," she later told Fox News after first coming forward. One of his other exes, Courtney Vucekovich, also alleged he wanted to take a bite out of her as well as barbecue and eat her rib.
