Jovovich, Irvine, Allen & Awkwafina join Paradise Hills cast
Deadline is reporting that four more actors have joined the cast of the sci-fi thriller Paradise Hills, including Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil franchise, The Fifth Element), Jeremy Irvine (Mamma Mia 2, War Horse), Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones, John Wick) and Awkwafina (Ocean’s Eight, Crazy Rich Asians). Emma Roberts (American Horror Story), Eiza Gonzalez (Baby Driver) and Danielle Macdonald (Patti Cake$) star in the film, which is currently shooting in Spain.
In Paradise Hills, Roberts plays Uma, the daughter of a magnate who commits suicide after his company is targeted for hostile takeover by a predatory billionaire named Son Prescott. Prescott decides to marry Uma, but only after kidnapping and sending her to Paradise Hills, a private sanitarium where she is to have her mind systematically destroyed. Gonzalez will play Amarna, a tough Paradise Hills resident who might be Uma’s only hope in escaping the nightmare.
Serving as Alice Waddington’s directorial debut, Paradise Hills was written by Brian DeLeeuw, Nacho Vigalondo, and Sofia Cuenca. Nostromo Pictures’ Adrián Guerra and Nuria Valls are producing.
