God bless Val Kilmer. The guy seems to exist in every
Interestingly enough, he’s just signed to star in a film produced by a guy who I perceive to be the exact opposite: Kevin Spacey. Unlike Kilmer, there’s almost nothing inspired in Spacey’s work as of late. Even his turn as Lex Luthor was just another bland ingredient in an already disappointingly dull stew of a film. But Spacey’s made moves on the creative side of the film biz, and his production banner, Trigger Street, has already shepherded a few films to the box office in smaller releases (e.g. Beyond the Sea, The United States of Leland). Their latest film, Columbus Day, is a heist thriller of sorts starring Kilmer as a thief with a single morning to fix what went wrong with his biggest heist. Kilmer is due to be joined by Marg Helgenberger as his ex-wife that he’ll try to reconcile with that very same morning and Wilmer Valderrama as a criminal associate. I’m not particularly jazzed about his multi-syllabic co-stars, but any chances we get to see Kilmer starring in a film involving heists work for me. A lot will depend on who’s directing this crazy thing which is unknown for now.
