Deadline report that he’ll be reuniting once more with Brit Marling, who will star alongside Michael Pitt (Boardwalk Empire), Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead), Astrid Bergès-Frisbey (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), and Archie Panjabi (The Good Wife).
Pitt plays a molecular biologist who, together with his brilliant lab partner (Marling), uncovers startling evidence that may fundamentally change society as we know it.
Cahill’s debut was one of the best and most memorable sci-fi movies I think I’ve ever seen. So naturally, I cannot wait to see what he has for us next.
Cahill co-write that first film with Marling, but it sounds like he’ll be directing from a script he wrote solo for I Origins.
After debuting at Sundance with both Another Earth and Sound of My Voice back in 2011, Marling has since been very busy working on the likes of Arbitrage, Robert Redford’s The Company You Keep, and the upcoming The East, which sees her reunite with Sound of My Voice’s Zal Batmanglij.
The film’s premise has all the promise that Cahill’s debut feature had, and it sounds like it will be grounded in its characters once more, with a strong sci-fi thread running through it.
No word yet on when we can expect production on I Origins to begin, but hopefully it won’t be long before shooting gets underway, with the leading cast now confirmed. This is definitely one to start looking forward to.
