Emile Hirsch Starring in ‘Autopsy of Jane Doe’

Emile Hirsch and Brian Cox willl star in supernatural thriller “The Autopsy of Jane Doe,” with Andre Ovredal directing and production beginning at the end of the month in London.

It’s the first acting gig for Hirsch following his Jan. 25 arrest for allegedly choking a female executive at the Sundance Film Festival. Hirsch checked into a rehab facility following the incident and is due in court on March 15.

IM Global’s Octane genre division will fully finance “Jane Doe.” Producers are Fred Berger (“La La Land”) and Eric Garcia (“Matchstick Men”) under their Impostor Pictures banner with Rory Aitken and Ben Pugh at their 42 shingle.

Norwegian director Ovredal (“Trollhunter”) is making his English-language debut. He will direct from an original Black List screenplay by Ian Goldberg and Richard Naing.

Cox and Hirsch will play father and son coroners who receive a mysterious homicide victim with no apparent cause of death. They then discover increasingly bizarre clues that hold the key to her terrifying secrets.

IM Global topper Stuart Ford, Matt Jackson and Ben Shields Catlin will executive produce “Jane Doe.”

Octane is in post-production on two self-financed genre titles co-produced with Blumhouse — supernatural thriller “Incarnate,” starring Aaron Eckhart, which will be distributed by Universal in the U.S.; and “Viral,” a thriller directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, which will be distributed by Dimension Films in the U.S.

The news about the castings was first reported by Deadline.com.
