Richard de Klerk discusses his new thriller “Repeaters”

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

HollywoodNews.com: Indie film hottie Richard de Klerk (“Cole”), whose new “Repeaters” thriller has been widely compared to “Groundhog Day,” tells us that the G-word “did come up on the set and it has to. You can’t argue with Bill Murray and an amazing film. But I think enough time has passed that we can take another look at the premise.”

Certainly “Repeaters” takes the idea of characters caught in a day that repeats over and over — and takes it in an entirely different direction from the 1993 rom com. In “Repeaters,” there are two young men (Dustin Milligan and de Klerk) and a young woman (Amanda Crew) in drug rehab. And, as de Klerk says, “it gets into the whole moral compass of a person.” With all the normal laws of time and society are suspended, will a person act honorably, embrace immorality or completely flip out?

Suffice it to say, de Klerk, who is also a producer on the feature, had a lot to work with as an actor. The film drew raves at the recent Toronto Film Festival. “It was unbelievable. I was so grateful,” he says.
