Oscar-winner Marlee Matlin is set to star in Moonstone Entertainment’s mystery-suspense drama “When Justice Fails,” which begins shooting in Montreal on May 14.
Directed by Allan Goldstein, the film focuses on a disillusioned cop (Jeff Fahey) investigating the gruesome murders of a number of acquitted rapists. Matlin portrays an enigmatic prosecutor whose emotional involvement with the rape cases makes her a prime suspect.
The film is executive produced by Yael Stroh and James Holt. The producers are Murray Shostak, Danny Rossner and Goldstein.
Matlin, who garnered an Oscar and a Golden Globe for her role in Paramount Pictures’ “Children of a Lesser God,” recently appeared in UA’s 1996 feature “It’s My Party.”
The actress also received two Golden Globes for her role in the NBC series “Reasonable Doubts,” and was Emmy-nominated for guest spots on CBS’ “Picket Fences” and NBC’s “Seinfeld.”
