Val Kilmer says he has tried for years to find his voice and he’s still using it, even after losing it to cancer.
The trailer for his documentary, “Val,” has dropped and looks to offer an intimate portrait of the actor.
In the trailer, a voice-over explains that Kilmer has “lived a magical life.”
“I was recently diagnosed with throat cancer,” the narrator says. “I’m still recovering and it is difficult to talk and be understood.”
Kilmer had initially denied he was ill before he went public with his cancer diagnosis in 2017.
He now speaks using the aid of a medical device.
Last year he released a memoir, titled “I’m Your Huckleberry”—a famous line of his from the 1993 film “Tombstone.” The memoir traces his career, including roles playing singer Jim Morrison in the big-screen biopic about The Doors frontman.
“Val” is set to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival and scheduled to be theaters July 23 before being release on Amazon Prime Video on Aug. 6.
