Jessica Alba Boards Supernatural Thriller The Veil

February 14, 2014


Jessica Alba is, according to The Hollywood Reporter, negotiating to star opposite Thomas Jane in Universal Pictures' upcoming supernatural thriller The Veil. To be directed by Phil Joanou, the film boasts a screenplay by Robert Ben Garant.

The Veil begins 30 years ago, when members of a religious cult known as "Heaven's Veil" take their own lives. The truth behind what really happened remains buried deep in the memory of the sole survivor, a five-year-old girl, who returns to the compound with a documentary crew as an adult. They soon discover something that is far more terrifying than anything they could have imagined.

Alba recently starred on the television miniseries "The Spoils of Babylon." She can soon be seen in Joe Carnahan's microbudget actioner Stretch, Robert Rodriguez's Frank Miller anthology sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Tom Vaughn's romantic comedy How to Make Love Like an Englishman and Kyle Newman's teen assassin comedy actioner Barely Lethal.

Production on The Veil is slated to begin in April.
