Michael Shanks in FACES IN THE CROWD, new movie

I gotta get a Daniel icon... anyway... news on the new film!


Oscar-nominated writer/director Julien Magnat's feature length debut Faces in the Crowd began principal photography in and around Winnipeg, Canada this past weekend. Joining the previously announced Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil, The Fourth Kind) and Julian McMahon ("Nip/Tuck", Fantastic Four) are Michael Shanks ("Stargate", "24"), David Atrakchi (Transporter 3), Sarah Wayne Callies ("Prison Break") and Marianne Faithful. The concept behind this thriller is pretty cool as Jovovich stars as a woman who has a severe case of face-blindess -- and there's "someone" after her. You can find the full plot details below.

"Magnat's script chronicles the account of elementary school teacher Anna Marchant (Milla Jovovich) who is attacked by a serial killer known only as Tearjerk Jack and survives, but is left to struggle with a neurological disorder commonly referred to as face-blindness (prosopagnosia).

Only able to recognize voices she fights to adapt to her diagnosis and the ever-changing faces of those around her. Working with Detective Kerrest (Julian McMahon) Anna race's to identify her attacker. All the while the killer is closing in determined to eliminate this potential witness. Only Anna has seen his face – and he could be anyone. "

The film is a Saskatchewan-Manitoba interprovincial Canada-France co-production with key technical and creative personnel from both provinces. Principal photography will take place in Manitoba and post-production including all computer generated visual effects will be completed in Saskatchewan.

Executive producer Nicolas Chartier of Voltage Pictures will handle international sales. Their first in-house production, THE HURT LOCKER, received six Academy Award's in 2010.

Principal photography will wrap June 13, 2010.
