Thesps climb aboard ‘Kilimanjaro’

Ensemble cast gets to work this week in Brooklyn

Chris Marquette (“The Girl Next Door”), Diego Klattenhoff (“Homeland”) and Jim Gaffigan (“It’s Kind of a Funny Story”) have joined the cast of indie drama “Kilimanjaro,” which Walter Strafford is directing from a script he wrote.

John Cullum (“All Good Things”), Bruce Altman (“Arbitrage”), Adam James (“Band of Brothers”), Henny Russell (“You Don’t Know Jack”) and Val Emmich (“Ugly Betty”) have been tapped to round out the ensemble. Brian Geraghty stars alongside Alexia Rasmussen and Abigail Spencer.

Strafford’s debut feature finds Geraghty playing a man who, stuck in a routine job and a stagnant relationship, sets out to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro with his best friend (Marquette). Facing challenges from every direction, protag struggles to make his way to the mountaintop.

Ryan Piers Williams and Jason Michael Berman are producing with Thomas B. Fore, Kwesi Collisson, Gordon Bijelonic and Datari Turner.
