Christopher Webster [Celluloid 02.15.18] scifi thriller



About a year ago it was announced that celebrated French director Claire Denis and English novelist Zadie Smith were teaming up on a sci-fi drama called High Life.

Robert Pattinson stars as an astronaut while Boyhood actress Patricia Arquette is also on the project. Not we have the first image from the film along with some more details.


Synopsis:
High Life takes place beyond the solar system in a future that seems like the present. A group of criminals accept a mission in space to become the subjects of a human reproduction experiment. They find themselves in the most unimaginable situation after a storm of cosmic rays hit the ship.


The movie also stars Mia Goth (A Cure for Wellness, The Survivalist) and Academy Award winner Juliette Binoche (The English Patient, Certified Copy).


Rounding out the cast are André Benjamin (Jimi: All is by My Side, American Crime), Lars Eidinger (Clouds of Sils Maria, Personal Shopper), Agata Buzek (Redemption, The Reverse), Ewan Mitchell (The Last Kingdom, The Halcyon), Jessie Ross (The Frankenstein Chronicles), and Claire Tran (Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, Lucy).


Writing credits go to Claire Denis, Jean-Pol Fargeau, Geoff Cox and Nick Laird.


Nick Laird is also a co-writer on the project.

Great director, great cast. I hope that Geoff Cox is the same Geoff Cox who wrote Evolution, 'cause that guy understands science fiction.
