Rooney Mara and Nicholas Hoult are all set to star in THE DISCOVERY as it hits AFM. The film was co-written by Charlie McDowell and Justin Lader who previously worked together on The One I Love. Like the previous project, McDowell will also direct.
The film is described as a “gripping love story set in a world where the existence of the afterlife is scientifically proven.” Hoult will play the son of the person who learns of the discovery, while Mara plays his love interest with a tragic past.
Mara was most recently seen on the screen in Pan and will next be seen opposite Cate Blanchett in Carol. Hoult meanwhile was in the biggest films of the year in Mad Max: Fury Road and will return as “Beast” in next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse.
