Milla Jovovich Sees A Lot Of Faces
Milla Jovovich is clearly not done doing a lot of screaming. First she's got the thriller The Fourth Kind coming out, in which she has some too-close encounter with aliens, and now she's signed on for Faces in the Crowd, a "psychological thriller" from writer-director Julien Magnat, who has on his resume the horror farce Bloody Mallory.
According to Variety, Jovovich will play a woman who loses the ability to recognize faces after being attacked by a serial killer. After she's released from the hospital, of course, the serial killer closes in on her, forced to try to kill her even though, duh, she won't recognize him. What does it mean when you can see a plot hole in the movie just from reading a brief description?
Of course I jest-- I'm at least hoping that they'll come up with a way to make this feel plausible. And the story is apparently based on a real-life condition called prosopagnosia, which I should probably remember from my high school psychology class. Not that I'm counting on this story to be medically sound or whatever, but it adds a fun real-life wrinkle, right?
