Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 20, 2008 -
Stars from such movie and television hits as Transformers, Independence Day, Flightplan and Prison Break all joined the cast of the much anticipated suspense thriller, Intent. Madison Mason, Kirk Woller, Tim Kelleher and Muse Watson reached agreements with producers this week.
Madison Mason has appeared in dozens of box office hits, including Transformers, Red Dragon and Pearl Harbor. In addition to appearing in more than 80 television series, his films have grossed over a billion dollars worldwide. "His talent and box office success speak for themselves," said Intent screenwriter, Tim Crockett.
Kirk Woller has appeared in more than 30 films, including Steven Spielberg's Oscar nominated, Minority Report. He went on to play Jodie Foster's nemesis in the blockbuster, Flightplan. "Spielberg liked him and everyone here thought he would be a great addition. They were right," said producer, Max Weinstein. Some of Woller's other credits include Resident Evil: Extinction, Flags of our Fathers and The Ring Two.
Tim Kelleher's career spans more than 20 years of filmmaking. He has worked with everyone from Nicolas Cage on Matchstick Men to Will Smith on Independence Day. Kelleher also appeared in 35 television series including Law & Order, CSI and 24. "Tim always delivers an outstanding performance," said assistant director, Cheeba White.
Muse Watson first made a name for himself as a drifter in Richard Gere's award winning Somersby. From there, he worked with Julia Roberts and Dennis Quaid in Something to Talk About. "Muse is so versatile and convincing. We're excited to have him on board," said Tim Crockett. Although Watson has been in dozens of films, he's probably best known for his role as Benjamin Willis in I Know What You Did Last Summer. He's also been a staple on hit TV shows such as Prison Break and NCIS.
Intent has been described as a combination of Silence of the Lambs and CSI. The story begins with a kidnapping in a suburban Ohio neighborhood and leads police on a manhunt that comes full circle. The thriller continues to win screenplay competitions in the U.S. and abroad. Critics have called the screenplay "A breathtaking stunner."
Producers are in talks with additional cast members, which could include such names as Kiefer Sutherland, Maria Bello and Steve Schirripa from The Sopranos. Filming will begin in Florida in September 2008.
