No, Jean-Luc Godard‘s French New Wave classic isn’t being remade yet again. Instead, as Variety puts it, a slate of actors have been cast in the new thriller Breathless, from director Jesse Baget. That cast includes Val Kilmer, Ray Liotta, and Gina Gershon, all of whom make up one of the more prolific casts that the filmmaker has worked with so far.
Written by Baget and Stefania Moscato, the story follows Gershon‘s character, a wife who collaborates with her friend to get rid of her husband, as she’s “fed up with [his] criminal acts.” Liotta has been cast as a local sheriff who becomes involved with the story, and Kilmer is playing the husband. Kelli Giddish is also in the cast, but the details of her role havent’t been disclosed yet.
Baget will get a much wider audience next year when his heist film Mississippi Wild hits theaters. »
