Another day, another thriller about prosopagnosia.
French writer-director Julien Magnat's 2011 straight-to-DVD indie thriller Faces in the Crowd dealt with the disorder, which causes "face blindness" or the inability to recognize faces, in a story that saw Milla Jovovich stalked by a serial killer after suffering from a head injury. Katherine Heigl is the latest actress to have the affliction in the similarly plotted Face Blind.
Deadline reports that Heigl will produce and star in the movie, where she will play a psychologist who is struck with the affliction and finds herself stalked by the man who terrorized one of her patients. See how Face Blind is different from Faces in the Crowd? Jovovich played a schoolteacher, not a psychologist. heigl and puppets >> Posted 02.03.12 by Ryan
