BAFTA-award winner Patrick Bergin (Sleeping With the Enemy, Patriot Games) and Francis Magee (Kin) have joined true-crime thriller Kiss of the Con Queen, directed by Tom Waller (The Last Executioner, The Cave).

Bergin and Magee will join Eoin O’Brien (The Last Full Measure) who plays an actor duped by an impersonator into traveling to Indonesia on the promise of auditions for a leading role in a DC origins series. There he discovers that he had been scammed by the infamous Con Queen of Hollywood. Ravi Patel (Transformers, Meet the Patels) plays the fraudster.

The film is written by O’Brien, and inspired by his own experience of being scammed by Hargobind Tahilramani, an Indonesian food blogger. Tahilramani was arrested in late 2020 following an FBI investigation that uncovered hundreds of cases of alleged fraud and identity theft involving unsuspecting victims in the film industry.

Production of Kiss of the Con Queen recently wrapped in Ireland. Filming locations included Thailand, Indonesia, Japan and the U.S.

Other cast members include retired UFC and MMA fighter Mike “Quick” Swick, Myles Clohessy (The Redeemer), Indonesian actor Yayu Unru (Jamojaya, The Last of Us) and rap artist Nay Myo “Day” Thant (Elephant White, The Lady).

The movie is financed by Film Bangkok (Thailand), Yaman Films (Japan), Westec Media (Cambodia), J Hawkins Consulting (U.S.) and De Warrenne Pictures (Ireland). Michael Pritchett (The Last Executioner, Mindfulness and Murder) and Takahiro Yamashita (Gensan Punch, December) are producing the film.
