Milla Jovovich will star in writer/director Julien Magnat’s psychological thriller Faces in the Crowd for Forecast Pictures, Radar Films and Minds Eye Entertainment, reports Variety.
The story centers on a woman who barely survives an attack by a serial killer and wakes up in hospital with a head injury that leaves her “face-blind.” No longer able to recognize faces, she must navigate a world in which facial features change each time she loses sight of them. All the while the killer is closing in, determined to eliminate the potential witness.
The screenplay deals with the real-life neurological disorder called prosopagnosia.
Filming is set to begin in March.
