Mira Sorvino is set to play the female lead in “Final Cut” for Lions Gate. Filming starts later this month.
She joins Robin Williams and Jim Caviezel in the sci-fi thriller to be directed by Omar Naim, who wrote the script. The film is being produced by Industry Entertainment.
Sorvino plays the girlfriend of a man who edits footage recorded in microchips implanted in people, removing the violence and bad moments. When he must edit the life of the technology’s creator, he becomes targeted by radicals.
The actress most recently starred in “Gods and Generals,” the Tim Blake Nelson-directed “The Grey Zone” and the Eduardo Ponti-directed “Between Strangers.”
