Jackson-Cohen, Arango, Posner Set For ‘The Healer’ (Exclusive)
Madrid – Brit actor Oliver Jackson-Cohen (NBC’s “Dracula,” “World Without End”) will star in “The Healer,” a feel-good drama marking Spanish director Paco Arango’s follow-up to his standout 2011 debut “Maktub” that will be produced by Enrique Posner (“Tie Me Up!

“It’s a great feel-good story about the human heart,” Arango said.

“Eleven down-and-out individuals are given a chance to change the financial system when they unexpectedly gain control of a major bank,” added Arango, whose 2011 feature debut “Maktub,” with “Lost’s” Jorge Garcia in a secondary role,
