Ana De Armas, Jude Law and Daniel Brühl have joined the growing cast of Ron Howard’s survival thriller ‘Origin of the Species.’

Alicia Vikander has also entered into negotiations to join.

Based on two different accounts of the same true story, the film is being described as “a darkly comic tale of murder and survival, set around a group of eclectic characters who abandon civilization for the Galapagos. They are all searching for the answer to that ever-pressing question that plagues us all: what is the meaning of life.”

Howard is coming off the Amazon Thai cave rescue thriller Thirteen Lives. The pic starred Viggo Mortensen, Colin Farrell, and Joel Edgerton.
