Mark Strong is set to star opposite Nicole Kidman in Rowan Joffe’s psychological thriller “Before I Go to Sleep” at Millennium Films/Nu Image.
Based on S.J. Watson’s bestselling book, Kidman plays a north London woman who wakes up every morning with amensia.
Her husband tells her she suffered a trauma and she dare not leave home. One day she ignores this and sees a doctor (Strong) who gives her a small digital recorder and urges her to play back her thoughts day after day.
The process begins to reintegrate her mind, and in doing so she comes to realize that the man sleeping next to her isn’t her husband.
Ridley Scott, Liza Marshall, Mark Gill and Matthew O’Toole are producing. Shooting kicks off early next year in London.
