Jessica Alba will star in the new Netflix action movie “Trigger Warning,” with Indonesian helmer Mouly Surya directing, Variety reports.

Josh Olson and John Brancato wrote the script for the action-packed thriller. Alba will be executive producer, wiht Thunder Road’s Basil Iwanyk and Erica Lee producing.

Considered a potential franchise launcher, Alba will star as a traumatized veteran who inherits her grandfather’s bar. She encounters a moral quandary after uncovering the truth behind his death.

The project will be an American breakthrough for Surya, whose “Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts” premiered as an official Directors’ Fortnight selection at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival and garnered critical acclaim. It was picked as Indonesia’s entry in the best foreign-language film category at the 91st Academy Awards.

Alba stars in and executive produces Spectrum Originals’ “LA’s Finest” along with Gabrielle Union and Sophie Reynolds. A spin-off of Jerry Bruckheimer’s “Bad Boys” films, the series will return in June for Season 2.

Plus, Alba recently announced a Disney+ documentary series with the working title “Parenting Without Borders,” which she will host and executive produce.
