Val Kilmer is in negotiations to join Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx in the Michael Mann-directed Collateral. The DreamWorks Pictures/Paramount Pictures co-production is due to begin lensing in October. The Stuart Beattie-penned project stars Foxx as a Los Angeles cab driver forced to serve as a chauffeur to a contract killer on a string of hits. Kilmer will star as a detective on the trail of Cruise's character. Julie Richardson is producing the dramatic thriller, with Frank Darabont, Chuck Russell and Robert Fried serving as executive producers. After experiencing a bit of a lull with his career near the end of the '90s, Kilmer has been on a roll lately. He has seven projects in the can awaiting release: Wonderland, Blind Horizon, Stateside, Mindhunters, The Missing, Delgo and Spartan. He also stars onscreen in the Bob Dylan indie Masked and Anonymous. Kilmer is repped by WMA.
