Things look to be coming together fairly quickly for The Veil, a new Blumhouse Productions project directed by Phil Joanou (U2: Rattle and Hum) that already has Thomas Jane attached to star. Currently in talks for the film is Jessica Alba, and an April shoot is planned.
The Veil is written by Robert Ben Garant (Jessabelle), and the story springs from the real-world headlines of religious cults and mass suicides. It begins 30 years ago, when members of a religious cult known as Heaven’s Veil take their own lives.
The truth 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.
Per THR’s Heat Vision Blog, Alba would play the filmmaker who accompanies the survivor back to the compound to investigate what really happened.
Jason Blum and Garant are producing.
