God Is A Bullet True Story Explained

God is a Bullet is based on a true story written by Boston Teran. Though not all the elements of the story are true.

In the book and the movie, the story revolves around a detective whose ex-wife has been murdered and his daughter has been kidnapped. But the real story is not based on a detective.

According to the Boston Teran website, it was the author who took the journey to find a girl. The author himself had been searching for the girl who had escaped from the cult.

In the trailer of the soon-to-be-released movie, we can see the girl who had escaped from the cult had taken the detective to The Ferryman. But the real story is also different.

During his dangerous and life-threatening journey, the author kept his letters and diaries which have been used as a reference for the novel God is a Bullet and how the story came to be.

Different from the book and movie, there are many characters in the movie that had not been mentioned in the book.

Meanwhile, Case Hardin is shown in the movie's real-life name Rose. It is her daughter that was kidnapped and suffered.

According to the author, Hughes is also the reason that God is a Bullet is made as a novel and movie. As he was the one who brought them out of Mexico.

According to Collider, Teran watched a man under the influence of drugs and alcohol begin to write something on the wall, making it look like a line of graffiti.

He was intrigued by what was written. So, later he asked the man to translate the message into English.
