DEJA VU

VAL KILMER is one of the most prolific actors of his generation. From his early work in "Top Gun” through his work with Oliver Stone in "The Doors” and Michael Mann in "Heat” to his most recent work as a career military officer in David Mamet's "Spartan” and the recent "Kiss, Kiss Bang, Bang” written and directed by Shane Black, produced by Joel Silver and co-starring Robert Downey Jr., Kilmer has worked with many of film's most respected directors and actors. He adds to that impressive list with two new films: DÉJÀ VU, where he will reteam with Jerry Bruckheimer and Tony Scott, and "Comanche Moon,” currently in production.

DÉJÀ VU is an action-thriller produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Films for Touchstone Pictures, with Jerry Bruckheimer producing and Tony Scott directing. Kilmer will be starring with Denzel Washington and Jim Caviezel. Kilmer will play the role of FBI Agent Andrew Pryzwarra. Filming began early February in New Orleans and finishes in Los Angeles in late May.

"Comanche Moon,” a prequel to the successful "Lonesome Dove,” is a CBS miniseries from Oscar®-winning writers Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana. Based on McMurtry's novel of the same title, "Comanche Moon” follows two cowboys through their years as Texas Rangers as they create legends for themselves, fighting the Comanche to open West Texas settlement. The series also stars Steve Zahn, Rachel Griffiths and Karl Urban.

The youngest student ever admitted to the drama department at Juilliard, Kilmer made his feature debut in the comedy "Top Secret,” which he followed up with "Real Genius” and his breakout role as the Iceman in Tony Scott's "Top Gun” opposite Tom Cruise.

Kilmer's other memorable roles include Jim Morrison in Oliver Stone's "The Doors,” the title character in "Batman Forever,” Doc Holliday in "Tombstone” and Simon Templar in "The Saint.” His other starring roles include Michael Mann's "Heat” with Robert De Niro and Al Pacino, "True Romance” directed by Tony Scott, Ron Howard's "Willow,” "At First Sight” and "Thunderheart.” He won the 2003 Prism Award for his work in "The Salton Sea” and appeared in the 3-D epic "Wings of Courage,” as well as voicing the character of Moses in the animated film "The Prince of Egypt.”

Kilmer's films also include Oliver Stone's "Alexander,” Renny Harlin's "Mindhunters,” the animated feature "Delgo,” Ron Howard's "The Missing,” "Blind Horizon,” "Stateside” and "Wonderland.”

During the production of "Wonderland,” Kilmer began a photography project which blossomed into a behind-the-scenes pictorial book. Released by Pocket Book, the photographs were exhibited in several cities in the United States.

When Kilmer was at Juilliard, he co-wrote the play "How It All Began,” based on the true story of a West German radical. The play was directed by Des McAnuff and produced by Joseph Papp for the Public Theater. He made his Broadway debut in the 1983 production of "Slab Boys” with Sean Penn and Kevin Bacon. He also appeared in Papp's Delacorte Theatre production of "Henry IV: Part One,” "As You Like It,” the title role of "Hamlet” and "‘Tis Pity She's a Whore,” also at Papp's Public Theater. He starred in the Max Azria-produced musical "The Ten Commandments” as Moses at the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles. In 2005, he starred on London's West End at the Playhouse Theater in Andrew Rattenbury's adaptation of "The Postman Always Rings Twice” as Frank Chambers, the drifter played by Jack Nicholson in the 1981 film version.

On television, Kilmer starred in the critically acclaimed HBO Original Movie "The Man Who Broke 1,000 Chains,” for which he received a CableACE nomination, and in Gore Vidal's "Billy the Kid,” playing the title role.
