David Valdes is taking a Hit…
The Latino actor will star in Art of a Hit (fka Excelsis), an indie psychological horror film directed by Gaelan Draper that’ll begin shooting in France this month under a SAG Interim Agreement.
Draper and Saxton co-wrote and are co-producing the film under their Dewey & Bug banner.
Set in 2003, the film follows a bygone rock band as they journey to a 1000-year-old French chateau to record with a reclusive super-producer in hopes of rebooting their career. But as tensions rise and tempers flare, they realize they are up against more than just the pressure to succeed.
Indie rock pioneer Adam Lasus is music directing the ’90s alternative-heavy soundtrack alongside music supervisor Linda Cohen.
Valdes’ previous credits include Dear White People, Speechless and Dr. Ken.
