Kimberly Elise "Event 15"

Sneak peak from movie I'm filming. A psych thriller #Event15

Words tweeted by Kimberly Elise just moments ago, which were accompanied by a photo, which you see above. 

News to me that she's shooting a psychological thriller. The hashtag - #Event15 - helped, because I immediately searched for a film with that title on IMDBPro, and, sure enough, there it was. I then searched S&A and didn't find any past write-ups on it, so we obviously haven't covered it. 

I did ask Ms Elise for more info, but of course she didn't reply. However, the little research I did was fruitful.

I learned that Event 15 is described as a tense, found-footage thriller, with a synopsis that reads:

Three soldiers get trapped in an elevator when terrorists set off a dirty bomb. But when White escapes, her world turns upside down as she realizes nothing is what it seems.

Starring alongside Kimberly Elise are Jennifer Morrison (she plays the lead protag), James Frain and Josh Stewart.

Elise plays a character named Blau, though it's not clear who that is exactly, and how involved she is in the narrative. But I'm anxious to find out.

Stephen Rider, who appeared in films like Safe House and The Great Debaters also has a role in this as a character named Diego.

Event 15 is being directed by British filmmaker Matthew Thompson (this is his second feature); principal photography started late last month it appears.

We're due for an interview with Ms Elise, and we've been promised one, but it's just a matter of working out a time when it can happen. So stay tuned... when it happens, this is a project we'll obviously be asking her about.
