I suppose the producers of FACE BLIND are banking on everybody forgetting last year's ridiculous Milla Jovovich-led thriller FACES IN THE CROWD. How else to explain the plot of their new movie..? (Maybe they're Movie Blind?)
Deadline.com reports that Katherine Heigl (who will never be America's Sweetheart, no matter how hard Hollywood tries) is set to star in FACE BLIND, which is about a psychologist struck with a rare affliction that makes it impossible to distinguish people by their faces. When a man who terrorized her most vulnerable patient stalks her, the psychologist can’t recognize him, and her husband thinks she’s the one who is going crazy.
This is so similar to the concept of FACES IN THE CROWD. To be fair, that movie is terrible, so perhaps it doesn't really matter that it's already being pseudo-remade.
Dominic Harari and Teresa De Pelegri wrote the film, which will be co-produced by Heigl, Trudie Styler and Celine Rattra.
