‘Pretty Little Liars’ Alum Sasha Pieterse To Topline MPCA Thriller ‘The Image Of You’; Nestor Carbonell, Mira Sorvino & More Also Set

EXCLUSIVE: Republic Pictures has snapped up rights to The Image of You, a recently wrapped thriller starring Sasha Pieterse (Pretty Little Liars) in dual roles. Pic is set for release via Paramount Global Content Distribution at a date that hasn’t been disclosed.

Parker Young (United States of Al), Nestor Carbonell (The Morning Show), Michele Nordin (Justified) and Academy Award winner Mira Sorvino (Shining Vale) also star in the film from MPCA (Double Life, Margaux) — an adaptation of the same-name novel from UK-based bestseller Adele Parks MBE, which Jeff Fisher (Killer Movie) directs from a script by Chris Sivertson (Monstrous).

The first project to emerge from a multi-picture deal between MPCA and Parks, The Image of You has Pieterse playing identical twins Anna and Zoe, who share a bond so close that nothing — and no one — can tear them apart. While Anna is romantic and trusting, her sister Zoe is daring and dangerous. When Anna meets charismatic Nick (Young), an ambitious stock trader, she thinks he’s perfect. But Zoe, who has seen Anna betrayed by men before, doesn’t trust him. She’s determined to discover the truth about Nick, no matter who stands in the way.

Sorvino and Carbonell play the twins’ wealthy parents, Alexia and David, who are harboring secrets of their own, with Nordin as Nick’s sister, Rebecca. Producers are MPCA CEO Brad Krevoy, David Wulf and Ernie Barbarash. MPCA’s Amanda Phillips, Lorenzo Nardini and Kaan Karahan are exec producing alongside AJ Riach.
