Ashley Judd loves the roles that come with tons of baggage. The actress has signed on to topline Helen for Egoli Tossell Film, a drama about a woman who suffers from emotional issues.
Ashley Judd is Helen
Written and directed by Sandra Nettelbeck (Mostly Martha), Helen centers on a music professor and mother who suffers from a deep, debilitating depression. Her family tries to help her, but no one can relate to her pain other than a young female student who knows depression all too well.
The film will be produced by Egoli Tossell Film and Insight Film Studios. Production is scheduled to begin October 2nd up in Vancouver.
Ashley Judd was last seen in Liongate's Bug and will next appear in The Weinstein Co's ensemble drama Crossing Over, set for release this December.
