The Advocate reports that actor-activist James Duke Mason (a 2011 Out100 recipient) will team with director Matthew Mishory for Disappear Here, a thriller set, according to its Kickstarater page, in "the parallel shadow worlds of Hollywood and high-stake national politics."
"Not only will this film be exciting and captivating to watch, but it will also send a strong political and social statement about the country we live in," Mason tells The Advocate. "It's a neo-noir thriller that has a powerful message for our society, and I think that's what makes it unique."
Mishory is the director of the acclaimed film Joshua Tree 1951: A Portrait of James Dean, which gets into some of Dean's secret gay past. Oh, and don't forget that Mason is the son of Belinda Carlisle! They want to raise $25,000 for the project. Couldn't Belinda help out? Well, Kickstarter, as we know, is more about building an audience than just getting the money, honey.
