Today, Netflix announced that Michelle Monaghan will star in the upcoming psychological thriller limited series, Echoes. She will work double duty, playing a set of identical twins at the center of the show’s story.
“Echoes is a mystery thriller about two identical twins, Leni and Gina, who share a dangerous secret. Since they were children, Leni and Gina have secretly swapped lives, culminating in a double life as adults: they share two homes, two husbands, and a child but everything in their perfectly choreographed world is thrown into disarray when one of the sisters goes missing,” states Netflix’s logline.
Monaghan will star as both “Leni” and “Gina” in the seven-episode series. Leni is described as a stay-at-home mom who married her childhood sweetheart and helps run the family’s horse farm. Gina is the complete opposite, having left her home for Los Angeles and quickly gained fame for writing about the darker side of her childhood.
Making her breakout role in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang alongside Robert Downey Jr., Monaghan has built an impressive career over the years, with multiple film and television credits to her name, including The Path, Messiah, The Craft: Legacy, and the Mission Impossible film series with Tom Cruise. She recently finished filming on Black Site, directed by Sophia Banks, and is currently in production on the film Nanny, written and directed by Nikyatu Jusu.
Yorkey and Quinton Peeples (Marvel’s Runaways) will serve as executive producers and co-showrunners, with Australian show creator and writer Vanessa Gazy also set to executive produce. Imogen Banks (The Beautiful Lie) will produce with Endemol Shine Banks Australia.
