Barkin, Janssen Take On “The Chameleon”

Ellen Barkin, Famke Janssen and French-Canadian actor Marc-Andre Grondin (“Che”) have joined the cast of the psychological thriller “The Chameleon” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Jean Paul Salome directs and co-wrote the story which revolves around the reunion of a young man (Grondin) and his family after being positively identified in an unsolved missing-persons case.

The reunion turns bittersweet when suspicions arise about whether he really is their son.

Barkin will play the mom, and Janssen is an FBI agent. Nick Stahl and Emilie de Ravin also star.

The story is inspired by a New Yorker article about a man named Frederic Bourdin who assumed at least 39 identities, three of them missing teens.

Bill Perkins, Cooper Richey, Ram Bergman and Marie-Castille Schaar are producing.
