Annihilation

By July 17, 2015Nat-news

 
A few weeks back we learned that Natalie was being consider for Alex Garland’s upcoming sci-fi, Annihilation. Anyone that has seen his new film, Ex Machina, will be positively frothing at the mouth at the potential. We don’t know about Natalie but Alex has been doing the media rounds and dropping some interesting blurbs about the project. Here are a few choice samples:

“If we manage to get that going, it would be shooting in, I think, April of next year. So we’d go in to prep in January and shoot in April.”

..

[Annhilation] is not tightly adhering to the beats of the novel in the same way,” said Garland. “It’s a looser adaptation,” although “the basic precepts” are still there. “

It’s in the sort of darker, stranger, propulsive space. It’s more like Dredd and 28 Days Later. Never Let Me Go and Ex Machina basically are reflective, quiet, talky movies, and this has some of the same sort of propulsion, I’d say, of 28 Days and some of the hallucinogenic aspects of Dredd, but they’re way more ramped up. Way, way more ramped up.

  • I just watched Ex Machina last night, and I could not believe how much Alicia Vikander reminded me of Natalie. If Natalie is ever in a movie that is casting someone to play her sister, Alicia would be a perfect choice. I am really looking forward to Natalie working with Alex Garland.

    Do we know which character Natalie might be playing? I just finished the series and would be curious to know.

    Sounds like it could be a great project for Natalie. Crossing my fingers for this one
