'Stiletto' keen on Berenger, Biehn, Katic


NEW YORK -- Tom Berenger, Michael Biehn and Stana Katic have been tapped to star in the crime thriller "Stiletto" from producer-director Nick Vallelonga.

The feature, which recently began principal photography, stars Katic (NBC's "Heroes") as an assassin whose seemingly random killings puzzle her lover, her clients and the detective following her rising body count. Berenger ("Training Day") plays her boyfriend, whose rise in organized crime is offset by his love for her and his Mafia cohort (Biehn of "Grindhouse").

Paul Sloan ("The Scorpion King") plays the detective and makes his feature screenwriting debut with the film.

The ensemble cast also includes Dominique Swain, Kelly Hu, Diane Venora, William Forsythe, Amanda Brooks and Tom Sizemore.

"Stiletto" is produced by Vallelonga ("A Modern Twain Story: The Prince and the Pauper") and co-produced by Warren Ostergard. The feature is being filmed with Panavision's state-of-the-art Genesis Super 35 Digital Cinematography Camera System.

Berenger's credits include his Oscar-nominated turn in "Platoon," "Major League" and "Born on the Fourth of July" as well as the upcoming "The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey." Biehn, who has appeared in "The Terminator," "Aliens," "Tombstone" and "The Abyss," will star in the upcoming "Kids in America" for Universal Pictures. Katic next appears in Robert Benton's "Feast of Love" with Morgan Freeman and Greg Kinnear.

Berenger is repped by ICM and Brillstein-Grey Entertainment. Biehn is repped by ICM and Schreck Rose & Dapello. Katic is repped by Abrams Artists Agency and ThirdHill Entertainment.
