Val Kilmer and Dorff in XIII Mini-series for NBC

Looks like Val Kilmer is using his newfound working relationship with NBC to good use (he’s also the voice of KITT, the talking car, for the network’s Knight Rider rebirth). According to Comics2Film, Kilmer and Stephen Dorff will be headlining a mini-series for NBC called “XIII”, to be based on the videogame of the same name. I’ve actually seen the game whenever I head down the gaming aisle at Best Buy and Fry’s, but have never actually played it, or indeed, glanced at it more than once as I walked past it. More details about the game/mini-series below.

More:

“XIII” is a high-stakes cat-and-mouse thriller starring Val Kilmer (“The Doors”) and Stephen Dorff (“World Trade Center”).

This adrenaline-charged miniseries begins dramatically as the first female U.S. President is shot dead by a sniper during her Veteran’s Day speech. Three months later, a wounded man is found tattered in a forest with no memory of his identity. The only clue is a tattoo on his neck, “XIII.” Could his lightning-fast reflexes and killer instincts betray him as the presidential assassin that the U.S. is desperately searching for?

Submerged in a far-reaching conspiracy, which threatens to overthrow the entire government, XIII’s identity becomes the key to unraveling a complex and dangerous secret that will shock and excite. From the first bullet, this gripping action-thriller will leave audiences gasping for more. “XIII” is produced by Prodigy Pictures and Cipango.

Sounds like it could be a good one, although Kilmer (pictured, below) would probably have to lose some weight before he would convince as a man with “lightning-fast reflexes”. He has gotten a tad, shall we say, chubby wobbly of late.

Update

According to IMDB.com, Dorff would play the assassin with “lightning-fast reflexes”, while Kilmer would play some character named “Mongoose”.

    So how did the movie XIII end? I watched both nights and thought there would have to be another night. Is this all there was. There WAS no ending.

    I agree. We dvr’d and just watched both parts today. Looks like they either left it open for a series or maybe to freak us out & make us think…

    I can not believe they would leave a show so open ended without even a hint of a series. SUCKS! But, the show was really good. We couldn’t turn it off!
