Marc-Andre Grondin, Ellen Barkin and Famke Janssen are starring in The Chameleon, a psychological thriller being directed by Jean Paul Salome.
The script, written by Salome and Natalie Carter, revolves around the reunion of a young man (Grondin) and his family after being positively identified in an unsolved missing-persons case. The reunion turns bittersweet when suspicions arise about whether he really is their son.
Barkin will play the mom, and Janssen is an FBI agent. Nick Stahl and Emilie de Ravin also star.
The project was inspired by a real person profiled in an August article in The New Yorker titled “The Chameleon: The Many Lives of Frederic Bourdin.” Bourdin assumed at least 39 identities, three of them missing teens.
