Reports are streaming in that Val Kilmer has signed on for the indie film The Steam Experiment — which revolves around six people trapped and terrorized in an urban Turkish bathhouse. For many of you, that’s a typical family vacation, but the idea behind this particular instance is that the terrorizing is being done to make a point about climate change. Apparently, Kilmer’s character, a professor, is convinced that overheating his hostages will prove that humans will devolve into chaos under the pressures of global warming. The only way he’ll reveal where his kidnapped hostages are is if his hypothesis is printed as the local paper’s front page headline.
Jeesh — doesn’t this guy know about blogging?
Filming has already started and The Steam Experiment is expected to fog up theaters next year. Look for Kilmer’s other global warming-themed film The Thaw to also hit in 2009.
