The sci-fi story follows the crew of the International Space Station, who, after receiving a sample from Mars, discover that it displays signs of life, and proves to be more intelligent than expected.
Gyllenhaal, whose Demolition is set to launch at this week’s SXSW, will be joining two of the hottest actors in the business, with Ryan Reynolds coming off of the astronomical success of the subversive superhero pic Deadpool and Ferguson breaking out in her role in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. Gyllenhaal is currently in production with Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals.
Gyllenhaal is repped by WME.
