Milla Jovovich set to play the title character in Survivor, the forthcoming feature from the Australian director behind V For Vendetta.
THE star of the Resident Evil film series will take a break from zombies to replace Katherine Heigl in the spy thriller Survivor, which was announced at the last Cannes Film Festival.
Milla Jovovich will be joined by Pierce Brosnan, Angela Bassett and Emma Thompson on the set of the film, slated for shooting in London from Jan 20, according to Deadline.com.
Survivor focuses on a US State Department employee who has been transferred to the US Embassy in London. After being accused of crimes she did not commit, she will be faced with the task of saving her own life and clearing her name, all while attempting to prevent an imminent terrorist attack.
The feature will mark a return to the director’s chair for James McTeigue, who helmed V For Vendetta. His last film, The Raven, was released in 2012.
Jovovich is currently shooting The Expendables 3 alongside Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mel Gibson. – AFP RelaxNews
