Milla Jovovich is on a roll. With four films in post-production (including the fourth installment of the Resident Evil series) and five gearing up to start, she’s one of the busiest ladies in Hollywood. You can add another one to that extensive queue as Moviehole reports that she’s locked to star in David R. Ellis’ upcoming supernatural thriller Bad Luck.
To be released in 3D, the film tells of a group of friends who find their lives changed when the superstitions they don’t believe in begin to come true. David Schow wrote the script for the $30 million flick.
Bad Luck seems like a perfect gig for genre star Jovovich, who was most recently seen in a pair of thrillers last year (A Perfect Getaway and The Fourth Kind), but it’s director David “Snakes on a Plane” Ellis who has me worried about the potential of the project. He made two of the four similarly-themed Final Destination films, as well as the 2004 dud Cellular. What he does best is stunts – which comes from his extensive experience as a stunt coordinator (his resume goes all the way back to 1975), so unless this picture is chock full of ‘em, count me out.
