Jennifer Beals is going from TV back to feature films. Joining up with Denzel Washington, Beals will co-star in the action-thriller The Book of Eli.
Jennifer Beals for The Book of Eli
Directed by Albert and Allen Hughes off a script by Gary Whitta, with a rewrite by Anthony Peckham, The Book of Eli centers on a lone hero named Eli (Washington) who must fight his way across the wasteland of a near-future America to protect a sacred book that might hold the key to saving humanity.
Gary Oldman and Mila Kunis also star.
Beals has been cast to play Oldman's sexual prize and Kunis' mother, a blind woman doing anything she can to protect her child.
The film is serving as a reunion of sorts for Washington and Beals, who worked together back in 1995 with Devil in a Blue Dress.
Production on The Book of Eli is set to begin this February in New Mexico.
