The project marks Aja’s return to French-language films after a gap of 15 years. Laurent will topline a cast which also includes actors Mathieu Amalric and Malik Zidi.

The film’s story centres on a young woman who wakes up in a medical cryo unit. She doesn’t remember who she is or how she ended up sequestered in a box no larger than a coffin. As she’s running out of oxygen, she must rebuild her memory to find a way out of her nightmare.

The film will be produced by Vincent Maraval, Brahim Chioua and Noemie Devide for Getaway Films.
