Olga Kurylenko (pictured; Quantum of Solace, Oblivion) will star in the supernatural horror film, Mara, it was announced today by The Solution Entertainment Group’s Myles Nestel and Room 101’s Steven Schneider (Paranormal Activity, Insidious) who will produce with Mann Made Films’ Scott Mann and James Edward Barker, Bloody Disgusting learned.

Cult favorite Clive Tonge will direct his feature film debut from an original collaboration with Jonathan Frank (The Tournament), based on the mythology and true phenomena of sleep paralysis, commonly known as Sudden Unexpected Nocturnal Death Syndrome (SUNDS), which is scheduled to shoot in May next year.

Criminal psychologist Kate Fuller (Kurylenko) is assigned to the murder of a man who has seemingly been strangled in his sleep by his wife and the only witness is their eight-year-old daughter, Sophie. As Kate digs into the mystery of an ancient demon which kills people in their sleep, she experiences the same petrifying symptoms as all previous victims and spirals through a chilling nightmare to save herself and Sophie before she dares fall asleep again.
