Ana De Armas and Jude Law are set to join the cast of Ron Howard's survival thriller 'Origin of Species'.
Origins of Species is said to be inspired by a true story, based on two different accounts of the same event. The filmmakers describe the movie as a "darkly comic tale of murder and survival, set around a group of eclectic characters who abandon civilization for the Galapagos. They are all searching for the answer to that ever-pressing question that plagues us all: what is the meaning of life."
'Origin of Species' is due to begin filming in Queensland, Australia, later this year. The script is being penned by Noah Pink, who previously wrote the screenplay 'Tetris' for Apple TV.
Oscar winner Howard is coming off the Amazon Thai cave rescue thriller Thirteen Lives. The pic starred Viggo Mortensen, Colin Farrell, and Joel Edgerton.
Ana De Armas was also just recently nominated for an Oscar for her role in the Netflix movie Blonde, a Marilyn Monroe film. That follows roles in films like Blade Runner 2049, No Time to Die, and Knives Out. Her newest movie, Ghosted, premiered last month on Apple TV+, featuring Ana De Armas alongside Chris Evans. She is also set to star in Ballerina, an upcoming spinoff of the John Wick movies.
