Milla Jovovich looks into ‘Faces’

Psychological thriller to begin shooting in March

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.

Scott Mednick (“Where the Wild Things Are”) is producing alongside Jean-Charles Levy, Clement Miserez and Kevin DeWalt.

Sylvain White, who directed “Stomp the Yard,” is also onboard to produce and mentor Magnat, who is making his English-language helming debut with the project, which he also penned.

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.

“Julien has written a breathtaking thriller that is truly original, and I was hooked from the first read,” Mednick said of the screenplay that deals with the real-life neurological disorder called prosopagnosia.

Lensing will begin in March. International sales will be handled at next week’s American Film Market by Voltage Pictures.

Jovovich, who toplined the “Resident Evil” franchise, is currently shooting the fourth installment. Her upcoming credits also include the Robert De Niro-Edward Norton starrer “Stone.”

She is repped by WME.
