Actress and Model Gia Skova to Co-Star in "Human Factor"

Crime Thriller Stars Eric Roberts, Charisma Carpenter and Danny Trejo

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 23, 2012) - Gia Skova, one of the most recognized up-and-coming actresses and models in the United States, will co-star in the crime thriller "Human Factor," set to begin filming on-location in New York mid-2012.

In addition to Skova, the film stars Academy Award® nominee Eric Roberts ("The Expendables," "The Dark Night"), Charisma Carpenter ("The Expendables," TV's "Greek" and "Veronica Mars") and Danny Trejo ("Spy Kids," "Con Air").

The film will be directed, written and produced by Chaz Fatur, with a screenplay by Eric Goren and Patricia Goren.

The film centers around a determined investigative reporter and a renegade detective who plan to uncover the mysterious disappearances of a homeless population, all the while trying to stay alive themselves. "The Human Factor" is a screenplay that will engage audiences with its intense story line, incredible action sequences and relatable heroes. The film will aim to make audiences question whether something like this could actually occur.

"Gia was one of our great discoveries when we were casting the film," said Fatur. "We were very taken with her determination and grasp of the script. We're looking forward to working with her."

Born in the small village of Saratov, just outside Kazakhstan, Russia, Skova began her career at the age of 12. She quickly caught the attention of some of Russia's largest retailers who began using her in their print ads and eventually broadcast commercials. It wasn't long before television producers cast Skova in several Russian television series and, by the time she was 15, she had become a celebrity in her native country. Skova has appeared on countless magazine covers around the world, adorned the runway for some of the most acclaimed fashion designers, been featured in print and commercial advertisements for internationally recognized brands and been cast in television series, films and theatrical productions.
