Emmanuelle Chriqui and Val Kilmer have Georgia on their mind

Posted by LiveFor on October 28, 2009

emmanuellechriquiEntourage’s Emmanuelle Chriqui and Val Kilmer have signed on for starring roles in the Russian conflict drama Georgia, directed by Renny Harlin. That’s right. Renny Harlin of Cliffhanger, Deep Blue Sea, Exorcist: The Beginning, Driven, Cutthroat Island, The Long Kiss Goodnight and Die Hard 2.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kilmer will take the role of a journalist involved in covering last year’s military conflict between Russia and Georgia.

The drama involves an American journalist and his cameraman caught in the crossfire and a Georgia native (Chriqui) and doctoral student who becomes entangled with them.

I like a few of Harlin’s films, but his recent work has got steadily worse. Chriqui was in You Don’t Mess With the Zohan and in the forthcoming Women in Trouble, but Val Kilmer can often bring the goods (then again he can also pick some bad roles). His time in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is true genius though. Check that film out if you haven’t already seen it.

    Gone are the days when I would go to a movie simply because Val Kilmer was in it. You’re right. He has done some brilliant stuff, but also has a problem reigning himself in. That, together with some questionable choices of roles, as you point out, make his movies a real gamble these days.
