Ryan Phillippe to Make Directorial Debut in Indie Thriller SHREVEPORT

     June 20, 2012


Ryan Phillippe, the actor who scored a breakout role in 1997’s I Know What You Did Last Summer, is set to write, direct and star in the indie thriller, Shreveport.  The picture centers on Phillippe as a has-been actor who is kidnapped while filming on the set of a low-budget movie in the titular city in Louisiana.  Variety reports that Phillippe’s character is also held hostage and tortured, but few other plot details are available.  Phillippe co-wrote Shreveport with Joe Gossett and has worked with directors Clint Eastwood (Flags of Our Fathers), Paul Haggis (Crash) and the late Robert Altman (Gosford Park), so we’ll see if he’s picked up any of their skills when production on Shreveport starts in Louisiana this summer.
