Oscar Isaac is a super busy actor lately, starring in two of the best films of last year with Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the amazing Ex Machina.
The Tracking Board has learned that Oscar will be reuniting with Ex Machina director Alex Garland for his next sci-fi project Annihilation, taking a starring role.
The rest of the cast includes Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tessa Thompson, and Gina Rodriguez.
It’s an adaptation of the first novel in the Souther Reach trilogy by author Jeff VanderMeer, they include Annihilation, Authority, and Acceptance.
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.
Production is said to begin this spring in London.
