"Kill Me, Deadly" - A Film Noir Comedy with Kirsten Vangness and Joe Mantegna uses Kickstarter to complete funding

"Why fall in love with a broad you can trust?
That's like reading a book you already know the ending to."


KILL ME, DEADLY is a labor of love for an intrepid group of theatre and film artists that have collaborated for years. We first brought this story to life on stage with a live theater production in 2009 that played to sold-out houses and rave reviews. The script's subsequent publication has seen it performed on stages all across the US, Canada and Ireland. Now that it's ready for its close up, we're bringing the story to the medium it was always intended for: film. KILL ME, DEADLY is a love letter to the classic Hollywood noirs of the 1940s; full of memorable characters, snappy dialogue and gorgeous black and white cinematography that transports you back to the world of Bogie and Bacall, molls and gangsters, femme fatales and hapless private eyes - all with enough intrigue and action to send Billy Wilder's head spinning. But what makes KILL ME, DEADLY unique are the laughs! We take this beloved genre back to its roots with a razor-sharp comedic spin, concocting a gorgeous cocktail for the eyes and ears that will require the viewer to wear their finest laughing pants. Our top-notch cast of actors and an incredibly talented crew have worked hard to make this a film that will delight cinema lovers all around the world, and with your help we can make it happen.
