The former True Blood star will be taking the lead as a woman who finds the remains of her estranged father and investigates his past in the new thriller.

Daredevil: Born Again may have been retooling, but from what is known, Deborah Ann Woll is set to return.

The press release from The Exchange for The Cycle has revealed that the thriller is set to be directed by Jordan Downey (The Head Hunter) and written by Downey and Kevin Stewart (The Head Hunter).

The plot synopsis reads,
In the film, when the body of a man missing for thirty-six years is discovered at the scene of a horrific crime, it’s up to his estranged daughter to unravel his dark past.
