Reunited and it feels so good. Writer/director Alex Garland officially introduced himself to the world last year with his Oscar-winning film Ex Machina. It was one of my favorite films of 2015, and if you enjoy watching great movies, it was probably one of yours as well.
Garland’s next project, Annihilation, adapted from a novel written by Jeff VanderMeer, already had a wonderful cast with Natalie Portman, Gina Rodriguez and Jennifer Jason Leigh set to star.
But now you can add one more huge name to the list. The Tracking Board is reporting that Oscar Isaac will once again be teaming up with Garland.
They also shared some plot details…
“The story centers around a biologist (Portman) who, in seeking answers to her husband’s tragic disappearance volunteers for a government expedition into an area sealed off as an environmental disaster zone. What she discovers, however, is pristine wilderness, and a mysterious dark force within it.”
Okay, I’m down. When can I buy tickets? Oh, right…they have to actually shoot the movie. According to the report, filming is not too far away. Production is scheduled to start in London later this spring.
We’re probably looking at a 2017 release date, but we’ll let you know more information once it becomes available.[mashshare]
