Lightbulb Robert Palmer Watkins to step away from GH for new film role


General Hospital's Robert Palmer Watkins (Dillon Quartermaine) is taking a break from the ABC soap for the film Last Three Days.


General Hospital fans who love chillin' with Dillon may have to prepare themselves for a bit of a break because portrayer Robert Palmer Watkins is stepping away from the ABC soap for a new role.

The actor took to Twitter to announce that he's taking a short vacation from GH to play the role of Jack Cluff in the new film Last Three Days.

“So pumped to play Jack Cluff in #LASTTHREEDAYS,” he wrote. “Thank you @GeneralHospital for letting me step away for a month to play a bit!”

Watkins plays the lead in Last Three Days, which is a neo-noir crime thriller he says is similar to Memento and The Butterfly Effect.

“I'm a cop in the movie. I get to do my own stunts, and shoot guns, and do hand to hand combat. It's just a really different type of role for me,” Watkins shares with TellTaleTV.

The story follows Watkins' Jack, a straight-laced undercover cop who wants to be a real hero and everything his father was not. Jack's wife, Beth (Deborah Lee Smith), works late nights as a nurse and struggles to maintain their relationship as the strain of the couple's jobs begins to pull them apart. To make matters worse, Jack gets caught up in a crime syndicate that is flooding the L.A. streets with a new dangerous and mysterious mind-altering drug. After a sting operation goes wrong, Jack wakes up to discover that his partner has disappeared, his wife has vanished, and he's missing the last three days of his life.

The Story (What’s the Scoop?)

LAST THREE DAYS is a gritty neo-noir crime thriller. With the suspense of Drive, the mystery of Memento, the looming threat of the Dark Knight, and the heart of About Time. Emotional, cinematic, and rooted in character, Last Three Days is an homage to the days of the classic crime noir thrillers of John Huston and Billy Wilder and the modern neo-noir directors like Christopher Nolan, Martin Scorsese, and Rian Johnson - a marriage of human drama and hard knuckle thriller.


Jack is a straightlaced undercover cop, who wants to be a real hero, everything his father was not. Jack’s lovely wife, Beth, works late nights as a nurse and struggles to maintain their relationship as the strain of their jobs begins to pull the couple apart. To make matters worse Jack gets caught up in a crime syndicate that is flooding the LA streets with a new dangerous and mysterious mind-altering drug. It’s the perfect setup for a crime thriller

After a sting operation goes wrong, Jack wakes up to discover that his partner has disappeared, his wife has vanished, and he's missing the last three days of his life. Cue the dramatic music! It's a race against time for Jack to rectify his mistakes, rescue his wife, and stop a gang war from ravaging the city. This story has it all, drama, action, intrigue and romance

In the vein of Memento, Last Three Days is ultimately about a man who has lost his way. Focusing so hard on fighting for justice and not becoming a deadbeat like his father, Jack almost loses the best thing he ever had.

The Cast

We are scouring the farthest reaches of the galaxy in search of the perfect cast. We’ve got top-notch talent, people who are passionate and dedicated to their craft.



Meet the Team! (Who are you guys?)

We are a fun and diverse group of artists and craftsmen pooling our resources, talents and expertise. We LOVE movies! The Last Three Days is truly a labor of love.


And a HOST of other people working hard behind the scenes, like grips, electrics, camera assistants, PAs, sound mixers, makeup artists, editors and VFX artists, the list goes on and on…..

Production (So where does all the money go?)

As we all know, films are super crazy expensive. Even though this is an independent ultra low budget film and we are doing everything we can to cut down costs, we still need green ($$$) to bring this to the screen. Our budget for production is $200,000 and we have already raised $125,000! We need your help to raise the rest of the money for us to go into production in August. The funds will go to renting camera equipment, lighting gear, costumes, and of course, most importantly, food! We have to make sure the cast and crew don’t starve! We are trying to do everything by the book, which means we also have to pay for insurance and permits. Everyone is working hard, and we want to create the best environment possible. And even after we yell, “That’s a wrap!”, we will need more money to cover post-production costs like editing, visual effects, music and festival submissions. This is where we need your help! Join us and become a part of the movie making process!
