HOLLYWOOD, Calif., July 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Across the vast landscape of roles Tom Sizemore has taken on (Saving Private Ryan, Natural Born Killers), his newest is perhaps all the more interesting, and one that audiences will recognize as hitting close to home. In the upcoming Psychological Mystery-thriller PRIVATE NUMBER, Sizemore plays Jeff, an Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor to novelist and recovering drinker Michael Lane (Hal Ozsan, 90210), whose sobriety, not surprisingly, seems only dubiously in-check. The film also stars Judd Nelson (The Breakfast Club, St. Elmo's Fire) as Sheriff G. Stance, and Nicholle Tom (Masters of Sex, The Nanny) as Michael's passionate, troubled wife, Katherine.
PRIVATE NUMBER winds itself around a series of frightening, cryptic phone messages and gruesome visions haunting writer Michael Lane, who is struggling to finish his second novel. As the phone calls intensify, Michael loses his hold on reality, obsessing over an unsolved mystery that leads to horrific revelations neither he, nor his devoted wife, can escape.
PRIVATE NUMBER is written and directed by LazRael Lison, and produced by Tatiana Chekhova and Travis Huff, for Summer House Pictures.
Casting Sizemore as an AA sponsor was a dream come true because of the actor's own well-documented struggles with substance abuse, which sidelined his career and filled the pages of his 2013 memoir, By Some Miracle I Made it Out of Here. His sobriety the past few years and resurgence in film and TV (The Red Road) added a layer of honesty and authentic inspiration to his character Jeff in PRIVATE NUMBER, says director Lison. As the film digs deeper into dark, disturbing corners, Sizemore's scenes are sobering for their rich, spare effect.
PRIVATE NUMBER is 100% complete and Rights Worldwide are currently available. The Premiere Screening will be held on Thursday, July 17th at Laemmle's Music Hall 3 Theater in Beverly Hills.
