Last week we brought you the news that THE MIST star Thomas Jane had signed on for Blumhouse's microbudgeted horror project THE VEIL, with Phil Joanou (DIRTY LAUNDRY) onboard to direct. Now THR is reporting that uber-hottie Jessica Alba is in talks to join Jane for THE VEIL, which is scheduled to go before the cameras in April.
As reported earlier, Universal will be distributing THE VEIL per its first-look deal with Blumhouse.
THE VEIL is written by Robert Ben Garant who also wrote the upcoming horror pic JESSABELLE for Blumhouse. THE VEIL centers on...
The story springs from the real-world headlines of religious cults and mass suicides. With Veil, it begins 30 years ago, when members of a religious cult known as Heaven's Veil take their own lives. The truth behind what really happened remains buried deep in the memory of the sole survivor, a five-year-old girl, who returns to the compound with a documentary crew as an adult. They soon discover something that is far more terrifying than anything they could have imagined.
Alba will play the documentary filmmaker who accompanies the survivor back to the compound to investigate what really happened.
More on THE VEIL as we hear it.
