Oyelowo In Talks For Clooneys Midnight

David Oyelowo is in final negotiations to join George Clooney, Felicity Jones and Kyle Chandler in Netflix’s untitled adaptation of Lily Brooks-Dalton’s 2016 novel “Good Morning, Midnight”.

The post-apocalyptic tale follows the parallel stories of Augustine (Clooney), a lonely scientist in the Arctic, and an astronaut on board the Aether spacecraft, which is trying to return home to Earth, as Augustine races to make contact with the spaceship.

Oyelowo’s role is being kept under wraps. Mark L. Smith (“The Revenant”) penned the script while Clooney will direct and shooting begins in October.
