Val Kilmer, Ray Liotta, Gina Gershon, and Kelli Giddish (Chase) are set to star in Jesse Baget’s Breathless. Before you freak out and think that they’re remake Jean-Luc Godard’s classic film, Baget’s movie is a thriller about a woman (Gershon), “who is fed up with her husband’s criminal acts and plans with her best friend to do something about him. Kilmer would play the husband and Liotta would play a local sheriff brought into the mix.” Variety reports that Baget co-wrote the script with Stefania Moscato.
Kilmer continues to be one of Hollywood’s undervalued actors. When I was at the amazing Twixt panel at Comic-Con, I could see an entire film of him just riffing out an opening sentence to a wannabe-Stephen King novel. Liotta’s also great and even though he does direct-to-DVD stuff like Street Kings 2, he can still deliver the goods like he did in the Sundance flick The Details. Liotta will be seen later this year in the David Wain comedy Wanderlust and next year in the Brad Pitt crime drama Cogan’s Trade.
