Often it seems that things move incredibly slowly in Hollywood, but there are also moments when things go at lightning speed, and that’s the case with the gay-themed mystery Kiss Me, Kill Me. In October 2014 it was seeking funding on Kickstarter, by November it got the greenlight, it started filming a few weeks ago and now it’s wrapped production.
To mark the occasion director Casper Andreas tweeted/instagrammed the pic above of one of the movie’s stars, Van Hansis, along with the words, ‘Directing from the backseat! #KissMeKillMe @ Echo Park & Sunset Blvd’, following it up a little later with ‘Ubering it home after wrapping principal photography of @kissmekillmemovie! Thrilled with everything we shot! Thrilled to be done! #prouddirector #KissMeKillMe #murdermystery #LosAngeles #filmnoir #exhausted #goodnight’.
Kiss Me, Kill Me is a contemporary Alfred Hitchcock/Agatha Christie-style ‘who-done-it’, with the mystery centered on Dusty, who confronts his unfaithful boyfriend and blacks-out, only to wake up to find his boyfriend murdered and he’s the prime suspect.
The picture stars Gale Harold, playing a gay character for the first time since his iconic performance as Brian Kinney on Showtime’s Queer as Folk, and three-time Emmy nominee Van Hansis, from As the World Turns, and the acclaimed Eastsiders.
The movie will hopefully be ready for screens later this year.
