Recently a new Blumhouse horror project was announced in the form of the Phil Joanou helmed cult chiller 'The Veil', a production which is set to kick off in April. Thomas Jane ('The Mist') has been lined up in a leading role and now according to the Hollywood Reporter the gorgeous Jessica Alba -below ('Sin City', 'Machete Kills') will be starring alongside him. Alba is set to play a documentary filmmaker who is hired to investigate what is believed to be a mass cult suicide. Universal will distribute the feature whilst Joanou will direct from a script written by Robert Ben Garant ('Hell Baby').
"The story springs from the real-world headlines of religious cults and mass suicides. With Veil, it begins 30 years ago, when members of a religious cult known as Heaven's Veil take their own lives. The truth behind what really happened 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."
'The Veil' is set to begin shooting this April.
