Veteran screenwriter W. Peter Iliff (Patriot Games, Varsity Blues) is set to make his directorial debut with Loaded for producer Tucker Tooley and is in final negotiations with producer-distributor Yari Film Group.
Loaded, written by Iliff, centers on an FBI agent who is forced to smoke cocaine in the line of duty and begins a double life as a drug addict. He is partnered with a female agent who also hides her life as a sex addict. When he stumbles onto the case of a missing baby, they’re forced to help each other solve their problems to finish the job.
Iliff has had the script for more than seven years and said it defines him as a writer.
