Olga Kurylenko, star of Oblivion, To The Wonder and Quantum Of Solace, has been cast in the lead role in new horror Mara from the makers of Paranormal Activity.

According to BloodyDisgusting, Mara is based on the condition known as sleep paralysis or Sudden Unexpected Nocturnal Death Syndrome (SUNDS).

“Criminal psychologist Kate Fuller (Kurylenko) is assigned to the murder of a man who has seemingly been strangled in his sleep by his wife and the only witness is their eight-year-old daughter, Sophie. As Kate digs into the mystery of an ancient demon which kills people in their sleep, she experiences the same petrifying symptoms as all previous victims and spirals through a chilling nightmare to save herself and Sophie before she dares fall asleep again.”

Mara will be directed by first timer Clive Tonge and is produced by Steven Schneider (Paranormal Activity, Insidious).
