Taissa Farmiga To Star In Ukranian Drama ‘Anna’

Taissa Farmiga has signed on to star in Anna, a coming-of-age Ukranian drama from White Noise producer Uri Singer. Dekel Berenson is writing and directing the project, which is inspired by his 2019 short film of the same name.

The movie is a contemporary coming-of-age drama that follows Anna, a Ukrainian immigrant who is training to become a sergeant in the U.S. Army. After weeks at the military base, and as the Russian forces prepare to invade her home country, she’s sexually assaulted by another army officer.

After returning to the base, she struggles to complete her course as she reconsiders her values, identity, and place in an American army and society that’s not fighting for her, too.

Farmiga is Ukranian-American, and was born to Ukranian immigrants, so this story should obviously resonate with her strongly. This will be an out of character role of sorts for her, as she’s been established as a scream queen over the past decade thanks to her many appearances on American Horror Story, as well as her roles in films The Final Girls and The Nun.

She currently stars in HBO series The Gilded Age, which will soon drop its second season, and will be seen later this year in The Nun 2.
