Common (“John Wick: Chapter Two”) and Jonny Lee Miller (“T2: Trainspotting”) have been set to star in “Nine Lives,” the upcoming film adaptation of acclaimed author Ursula K. Le Guin’s 1969 sci-fi dark comedy novella.
The story is set on a moon-base for off-world drilling and follows two jaded workers whose excitement at the prospect of incoming human company is dashed when they are instead sent ten clones.
Siri Rodnes directs the film which they co-wrote with Tom Basden. Gavin Humphries and Josephine Rose produce. Filming is expected to begin next Summer.
