Prepon will play Eve Duncan, the heroine in Johansen’s 1999 suspense thriller, who 10 years after the disappearance and murder of her 7-year-old daughter Bonnie, is contacted by a man claiming to be her killer.
Taunted by his clues about Bonnie’s case and his threats to kill again, she throws herself into her career as a forensic sculptor and works to close the case.
Naomi Judd will co-star as Eve’s mother, Sandra Duncan.
