In Your Face - Paintball
September 3, 2002
Mirus Productions, the Hollywood film production
company that brought you last year's action thriller "Downward Angel,"
has announced a tentative release date of November 15, 2002 for "In Your
Face," an action film totally based on the sport of paintball. Directed
by Tim Tomassino, from NBC-TV's top-rated "ER," the movie, as he describes
it, is about "the overpowering desire to win."
The story centers on Todd Jarvis and his
longtime buddies, Jared, Scott, and Chaz, all paintball players.
Daily, after high school they get a game of rec-ball together, but because
their small town offers very limited opportunities in the paintball venue,
they can only dream about the far-off possibility of playing "pro-style"
tournament speedball.One day they get news that will change their lives
The journey from that moment to the film's
end is not only dramatic - and funny- but is full of non-stop, driving
paintball action, like audiences have never before experienced. The
viewer becomes a participant in the drama of the game itself, thanks to
Stylistically, Tommasino has come up with
a potent mix. He combines dual camera, rapid-paced cinematography
by Kevin Jones (of "Duality" fame), an edgy editing style and some hot,
young talented actors in Keir O'Donnell and Michelle Borst, among others.
He tops it all off with over 20 new songs by Southern California's emerging
bands, along with a film score by Dennis McCarthy, of Star Trek fame.
"In Your Face" is due for release November
15. Continuously updated news and entertainment, including mini-trailers,
production scenes and character bios, as well as some of the movie's music,
