Val Kilmer, Ray Liotta and Gina Gershon are set to star in the thriller “Breathless.”
Jesse Baget is on board to direct, with Kelli Giddish also set to star.
Pic follows Gershon’s character, who is fed up with her husband’s criminal acts and plans with her best friend to do something about him. Kilmer would play the husband and Liotta would play a local sheriff brought into the mix.
Baget and Stefania Moscato penned the script, and Mark Holder, Christine Holder, Danny Roth and Phillip Goldfine are producing. Nicholas Chartier, Benjamin Sacks and Bryan Sexton will exec produce.

Kelli Giddish is one hot property this coming TV season. In addition to copping one of the two new series regular gigs on Law & Order: SVU, the blonde beauty will also reprise her role of The Good Wife‘s saucy Sophia Russo, TVLine has confirmed.
As of now, Giddish is set to appear only in the buzzy CBS drama’s Season 3 premiere, which airs Sunday, Sept. 25, at 9/8c, and picks up very soon after the events of the sophomore finale. But pre-SVU, series creators Robert and Michelle King had bigger, frothier plans for Kalinda’s latest — and married — hook-up. And those plans were going to form the shape of a triangle.
“We are struggling with some casting availability,” Robert responded when I asked him about the triangle he had penciled in for Season 3. “As you know, we lost Kelli Giddish to SVU, so we are reconfiguring some of the thinking.”
King, though, was resolved to bring back Giddish in some capacity, noting that her character “brought out a good aspect of Archie [Panjabi],” who plays typically tough Kalinda. “Kelli is so good,” he added. “They’re so lucky at SVU.”
@amask555 We do have a character name for Danny. And Kelli. Nick Amaro and Amanda Rollins. Shh. Don’t tell anyone.
