After his publisher markets his crime novel as a memoir, a novice author (Kevin James) finds himself forcibly recruited into a deadly political plot in Venezuela. Virginia filmmaker Jeff Wadlow (Kick Ass 2, Bates Motel, Non-Stop) will present a sneak preview of his latest action/comedy feature True Memoirs of an International Assassin. Jeff, a Charlottesville native, studied at Dartmouth College before completing his graduate degree at the University of Southern California. His thesis film, the tOWeR oF BabBLe, featuring narration by Kevin Spacey, won dozens of awards before taking the top prize in the Chrysler Million Dollar Film Competition. Jeff used the million-dollar grant to make his first feature film, Cry_Wolf, shot entirely on location in Richmond, Virginia, and released theatrically by Universal Studios. Each year, Jeff returns to his hometown to lead the Adrenaline Film Project, a program he founded twelve years ago to help filmmakers write, shoot, edit, and screen a short film in just 72 hours.
