Jessica Alba will star in the modern-day fable An Invisible Sign of My Own.

According to Variety, filmmaker Marilyn Agrelo (Mad Hot Ballroom) is directing the story based on Aimee Bender's tome, from a screenplay by Pam Falk and Mike Ellis (The Wedding Planner).

An Invisible Sign of My Own revolves around a young woman who has retreated from the world and is consumed by numbers and math. Things begin to change when she becomes a second-grade math teacher.

The project begins lensing next month.
