Mandate Pictures has signed Eva Mendes to star in Curve, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The story is a thriller that centers on a woman's struggle to survive when she finds herself at the mercy of a psychopathic killer after taking a detour into the backwoods of a remote area just outside of New York.

Mendes, who most recently starred in Sony's Ghost Rider, next co-stars in James Gray's We Own the Night, which will premiere at this year's Cannes film festival.
