EXCLUSIVE: Millennium Films has set Milla Jovovich, Pierce Brosnan, Emma Thompson and Angela Bassett to star in Survivor, a thriller that James McTeigue will direct starting January 20 in London. Charles Winkler and Irwin Winkler are producing. Phil Shelby wrote the script.

Jovovich plays a State Department employee newly posted to the American embassy in London, where she is charged with stopping terrorists from getting into the U.S. That puts her right in the line of fire and she is targeted for death and framed for crimes. Discredited, she is forced to go on the run while she tries to clear her name and stop a large-scale terrorist attack set for New Year’s Eve in Times Square.
