The movie is based on Jessica Knoll’s 2015 New York Times best-selling thriller about a New York magazine editor whose seemingly perfect life is turned upside down when a crime documentary forces Ani FanNelli (played by Kunis) to relive the truths of a shocking incident during her teenage years.

Kunis, married to actor Ashton Kutcher, will also be producing the film under her Orchard Farms Production company.

The movie is directed by Mike Barker, known from Black Match, The Handmaid’s Tale, and Fargo.

“There will be no road closures or detours for the filming, and there will be minimal impact to the community,” the Town of Cobourg posted on its Facebook page. “Welcome back Netflix and crew!”
