MATE: A thrilling upcoming feature film
The upcoming feature film MATE is psychological thriller of mystery and suspense in the vein of MEMENTO and THE USUAL SUSPECTS.
In a world of corruption and deceit, two former world chess champions cross paths and are unsuspectingly drawn into a deadly game of mystery and suspense. Michael Foster and Kyle Kessler are long time archrivals in the highly competitive game of sixty-four squares. Each has staked his claim to be the best grandmaster of his time. Each has arguably been deemed the greatest chess champion to ever play the game.
Yet, beneath the surface of tactics and strategies, there is a truth that engulfs them beyond their calculated geniuses; a truth that suddenly turns their world upside down; a truth that unfolds and forces them on the run from a group of killers who have coerced them into a dangerous game of intrigue.
In the world of sixty-four squares, where lies intersect the truth, nothing is what it seems. Inside the mind of a chess king, reality is merely an illusion.
I have signed on as a co-producer and I will also have a featured appearance in the film. The press release for the full cast will be released very soon. I was a chess consultant for the off-Broadway show "Fit to Kill" back in 2005. It was a blast! I am very excited about this project and I am looking forward to being a part of this movie.
