Kilmer Eyes Up Directorial Debut

VAL KILMER is eagerly awaiting the chance to make his directorial debut, and is so confident with his acting ability he's cast himself in two roles.

The multi-talented WONDERLAND star, currently appearing on London's West End stage in THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE, is writing the as-yet-untitled film's screenplay.

He says, "I'm writing a script at the moment. It's going to be a collaboration with the lyricist MARY-BETH DERRY, and I hope to direct and produce it when it's done.

"It's a biography - and I am writing two characters for me to play. One of them is MARK TWAIN.

"I know I have the energy to direct it. Although it'll be my first time, I think I'm up to it."
