Jessica Alba will star in Trigger Warner, a new thriller for Netflix
Alba, whose past credits include James Cameron’s Dark Angel, Sin City, and Fantastic Four, recently starred in and executive produced Spectrum Original’s LA’s Finest alongside Gabrielle Union, which will return to FOX UK this summer. She recently announced the Disney+ documentary series Parenting Without Borders, which she will host and executive produce.
Now, she’s adding Netflix to her list of partners with Trigger Warning, a film that follows a traumatised veteran, who inherits her grandfather’s bar after his untimely death, and is faced with a moral dilemma as she discovers the truth behind his death.
The film is directed by Mouly Surya, whose previous film Marlina The Murderer in Four Acts premiered as an official Directors’ Fortnight selection at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. It was Indonesia’s entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the 91st Academy Awards.
It is written by Josh Olson and John Brancato, with Alba exec-producing and Thunder Road’s Basil Iwanyk and Erica Lee both on board as producers.
