Val Kilmer will topline an indie drama entitled "Conspiracy" directed by "Snow Days" helmer Adam Marcus.
Opts to head for smaller production in spite of the success of his latest starring vehicle "Deja Vu", Val Kilmer is poised to be the male lead in "Conspiracy", an indie drama feature set to be directed by Connecticut-born filmmaker Adam Marcus which Jennifer Esposito also stars in.
Kilmer will play a special-ops United States Marine Corps member who takes his retirement after getting wounded during combat operations in Iraq while Esposito is cast as the hardworking single mother of an 8-year-old daughter and the survivor of an abusive marriage. Their paths cross when Kilmer's character learns that his friend has disappeared without a trace upon coming to the town where Esposito lives.
Pic, shot mainly in New Mexico, is being developed by Marcus based on the script he wrote alongside Debra Sullivan. Also starring are Jay Jablonski, Greg Serano, and Stacy Marie Warden with Alison Semenza producing for Hollywood Media Bridge and Benjamin Sacks and Bryan S. Sexton serving as line producer and associate producer, respectively.
