Awake the next Jaws?

Goon

According to the producer of Awake, Joana Vicente, "This film will do to surgery what 'Jaws' did to swimming in the ocean". Now thats a pretty bold statement, lets analyze some of the film to see if it can be accomplished.

The story focuses on a man, played by Hayden Christensen, who suffers "anesthetic awareness" and finds himself awake and aware, but paralyzed, during surgery. His young wife, played by Jessica Alba, must wrestle with her own demons as a drama unfolds around them.

Ok, now it doesn't sound too horrifying but if Jessica Alba is involved at least if it isn't as tramatic as Jaws we will have some nice eye candy. In October filming will begin in New York.
