Felicity Jones (“Rogue One”) is set to co-star in George Clooney’s untitled Netflix film based on Lily Brooks-Dalton’s 2016 novel “Good Morning, Midnight”.
Clooney will direct and star in the post-apocalyptic drama which follows the parallel stories of Augustine (Clooney), a lonely scientist in the Arctic, as he races to make contact with the crew of the Aether spacecraft as they try to return home to Earth.
Jones’ role is under wraps. Mark L. Smith. (“The Revenant”) is adapting the script and filming begins in October. Clooney and his Smokehouse production partner Grant Heslov will produce.
