Mark Strong, Brian Cox & Taissa Farmiga, Mindscape’

Spanish filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra, best known for the 2005 remake of "House of Wax" and 2009's "Orphan" (a very respectable $76 million worldwide) is turning into quite the B-movie cottage industry force.

He's got a "Taken 3" aka "Non-Stop" coming up (Liam Neeson growling on a plane), he almost directed the “Akira” adaptation before it was shuttered, and potentially on deck is a thriller called “Here There Be Monsters,” which may star Bradley Cooper. He’s also moving into the world of producing, and along with Peter Safran (“Disaster Movie,” “Meet The Spartans") is shepherding the project "Mindscape” to the screen.

Focusing on a man with the ability to enter people's memories, “Mindscape” has a strong cast that includes great character actor/well-cast villain Mark Strong ("Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy"), Brian Cox ("The Bourne Supremacy") and eighteen-year-old Taissa Farmiga ("American Horror Story," the younger sister of Vera Farmiga who co-starred alongside her in “Higher Ground”). Presumably with Strong as the lead, the story follows the man who takes on a girl's case to discover whether she is a brilliant sociopath or traumatized teen.

“Mindscape” will mark the feature-length directorial debut of Spaniard Jorge Dorado, a second-unit director known for a segment in 2007’s “Limonchello.” He also shot and directed the 2012 short "El Otro," and earned a 2005 Goya Award nomination for "La Guerra," a short co-directed with Luis Berdejo.
