Olivia Munn (X-Men Apocalypse) is attached to play the lead in feature drama Aleppo, the story of a Syrian refugee and a UN journalist (Munn), brought together by tragedy and their escape from Syria.
Currently in pre-production, the film from LA-based producer MiLu Entertainment will be directed by Brazilian filmmaker David Schurmann from an original script by Beto Dantas.
Attached crew include Oscar-wining art director/set decorator Brigitte Broch (Moulin Rouge) and Golden Globe-nominated composer Antonio Pinto (Despedida), with Juan Bergaz of Bergaz Productions serving as executive producer.

“Olivia is a strong, dynamic leading actress, whose passion for the project under David’s direction will bring this powerful and important story to life,” said producer Andre L III, CEO of MiLu Entertainment.
The announcement follows Munn’s recent casting as the lead in action movie Replay and social drama The Gateway, which is currently in post-production.
