EXCLUSIVE: X-Men and Taken franchise star Famke Janssen has joined Scott Speer’s Endless starring Alexandra Shipp and Nicholas Hamilton.

Endless, based on a draft by Rohit Kumar, follows madly in love 19-year-olds Chris (Hamilton) and Riley (Shipp) who are separated when a fatal accident leaves Chris stranded in limbo between life and death. In agony, Chris watches Riley grieve until they find a way to connect and share exhilarating, deeply emotional moments that transcend life and death. A story of love and loss, both Chris and Riley must ultimately accept the hardest lesson of all – letting go.

Janssen will play Chris’ single working-class mother. Production is currently underway in British Columbia. Janssen recently appeared on ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder in a recurring role and The Blacklist: Redemption.
