Ashley Judd to Topline Helen


Ashley Judd has signed on to topline drama Helen for Egoli Tossell Film and Insight Film Studios.

Written by Sandra Nettelbeck (Mostly Martha), who will also direct, the film centers on a music professor and mother who suffers from a deep, debilitating depression. Her family tries to help her, but no one can relate to her pain other than a young female student who knows depression all too well.

Shooting is scheduled to begin Oct. 2 in Vancouver.
