Milla Jovovich will star in Gold Circle Films' thriller The 4th Kind. Olatunde Osunsanmi, a former assistant to filmmaker Joe Carnahan, is making his directorial debut on the film, which he also wrote.

Although project details are being kept under wraps, it is described as a fact-based thriller involving an ongoing unsolved mystery in Alaska, where one town has seen an extraordinary number of unexplained disappearances during the past 40 years and there are accusations of a federal cover-up, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Jovovich plays a woman investigating the disappearances in the town.

A late-June start is being eyed.
