Written and directed by Mischa Webley, The Kill Hole, about a troubled and guilt-ridden Iraqi war vet, will premiere at the Santa Barbara International Film Fest at the end of this month (see previous post HERE). The indie action drama stars Chadwick Boseman, whom, if you recall in THIS previous post, is set to portray baseball icon Jackie Robinson in Brian Helgeland‘s upcoming biopic titled 42.
Boseman is joined by Tory Kittles, Billy Zane, Peter Greene, Dennis Atkins and others.
Here’s the full synopsis:
Lt. Samuel Drake (Chadwick Boseman) is a troubled vet plagued by his actions while deployed in Iraq. Recently discharged, he is trying to piece his life back together while he works as a cab driver and lives in a rundown motel room. He also attends counseling sessions led by Marshall (Billy Zane) to help cope with the horrors of his past. While on this path to a fresh start, Drake’s fragile new life is shattered when two executives (Peter Greene and Ted Rooney), who represent a private military contractor, present a new mission, one with no option to refuse; track down and kill Sgt. Devin Carter (Tory Kittles), an AWOL Marine Corps. sniper who knows the truth about Drake’s past and who himself is on a mission to target and kill members of the mercenary firm. A gripping, lyrical meditation on war and the scars it leaves on those who fight, The Kill Hole is a story of one man who is forced to face his violent past.
Watch the intense trailer below. I’m intrigued; looking forward to seeing Mr. Boseman in this.
