Just a couple days after it was revealed Thomas Jane was set to star in The Veil, he’s got some company, as THR reports that Jessica Alba in is talks to join him.
The movie starts with a religious cult called Heaven’s Veil killing themselves in a mass suicide several years ago, with the only survivor being a five-year-old girl. The film then jumps forward and follows that girl as an adult, who returns to the cult’s compound, along with a documentary crew, looking for answers. Inevitably they find something terrible and supernatural.
Alba is playing a documentary director who accompanies the young woman on her journey. It isn’t clear who Thomas Jane will be.
Phil Joanou (Gridiron Gang, The Punsher: Dirty Laundry) is directing from a screenplay by Robert Ben Garant (Reno 911, Night At The Museum). Jason Blum (Sinister, Paranormal Activity) is producing. The Veil will start shooting in April.
