‘Survivor’ Host Directs ‘Kiss Me’

The tribe has spoken — and apparently it wants to see more from Jeff Probst, director extraordinaire. (Groan, but still.)Probst — best known as the hat-wearing host of the long-running CBS reality series “Survivor” — is ready to make his first film in eleven years with “Kiss Me.” The indie drama focuses on a young girl (Sarah Bolger, “The Tudors”) who wears a back brace for her scoliosis and must navigate relationships with her family, friends and the older man (John Corbett) she works for as a babysitter. (That should go well.)This might seem like a totally random departure for Probst, but the Emmy winner has previous directing experience. He helmed the 2001 movie “Finder’s Fee,” which starred James Earl Jones, Matthew Lillard and an up-and-coming actor named Ryan Reynolds.”Kiss Me” is set to begin filming in Los Angeles this February. Expect it to hit the festival circuit sometime next year.[via THR]
