Actor RICHARD GERE, who stars in the upcoming ROBERT ALTMAN film DR T AND THE WOMEN, is set to investigate some strange phenomena in THE MOTHMAN PROPHECIES.
The AMERICAN GIGOLO star plays a reporter who is drawn to a small West Virginia town to investigate a series of strange events, including psychic visions and the appearance of bizarre entities.
RICHARD HATEM's script is based on a true story documented in a 1975 book of the same title by JOHN A. KEEL. Keel's account detailed his own investigation of such events in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, in the late 1960s. The psychological thriller will be directed by MARK PELLINGTON (ARLINGTON ROAD).
Shooting is slated to start in January (01), and Gere will immediately move on to Fox's UNFAITHFUL for director ADRIAN LYNE.
