Gina Rodriguez (“Jane the Virgin”) is in talks to star with Natalie Portman in “Ex Machina” director Alex Garland’s sci-fi movie “Annihilation” at Paramount Pictures.
An adaptation of Jeff VanderMeer’s novel, the story follows a group of women – an anthropologist, a surveyor, a psychologist, and a biologist (Portman) who take on a dangerous mission where the laws of nature don’t apply.
Frances McDormand is in contention for one of the other leads. Scott Rudin is producing and filming is slated to start in the spring.
