Jennifer Beals, who has spent the last several years on the TV series, The L Word, is returning to the big screen for The Book of Eli, a post apocalyptic action thriller.
The film will star Denzel Washington and is being directed by Albert and Allen Hughes.
The script, by Gary Whitta with a rewrite by Anthony Peckham, is about a lone hero, Eli (Washington), who must fight his way across the wasteland of a near-future America to protect a sacred book that just might hold the key to saving all humanity. Gary Oldman and Mila Kunis have also been cast.
Beals, who plays Kunis’ mother as well as Oldman’s sexual prize, is a blind woman who will do anything to protect her child.
Principal photography begins in February in New Mexico.
