-- ER's Hallee Hirsh, fresh off her starring role in the award winning play, Sarah's War, headed off to Dallas Texas in early July, 2012 to begin principle photography in the edgy action feature, Infiltrators
This feature, being filmed from a script that reads in the style reminiscent of the great Film Noir genre of yesteryear, tells the tale of a couple of urban explorers who are blackmailed into infiltrating a derelict building on the eve of its demolition with the hope they can recover a forgotten treasure. Infiltrators
reminds one of such films as Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark
, L.A. Confidential
, and other works portraying an esthetic of nocturnal, subterranean unreality. Like other films in the neo film noir genre, the plot lines in Infiltrators
are characteristically dark and express themes of shadowy motivations and bleak prospects. Like Raiders
, the film features long lost religious relics and even Nazis; and like L.A. Confidential
, there are enough betrayals and double-crosses to keep your head spinning.
Hirsh plays the role of Micki, the plucky, too smart and independent for her own good, sidekick to the main protagonist, Jimmy, played by Jonny Cruz. The film also stars Nathalie Kelley and Greg Jbara.
