Pierce Brosnan, Milla Jovovich Are Making a New Year’s Thriller

The terrorism-focused thriller helmed by V for Vendetta director James McTeigue has just acquired an impressive cast, according to Deadline: Milla Jovovich, Pierce Brosnan, Angela Bassett, and Emma Thompson. The confusingly titled Survivor has Jovovich in the lead playing a State Department employee newly posted in London and charged with stopping terrorists. She’s quickly framed, discredited, and forced to clear her name while attempting to stop “a large-scale terrorist attack set for New Year’s Eve in Gotham’s Times Square.” We like to imagine the film, which starts shooting January 20, will be just like New Year’s Eve but with more gunfights.
