George Clooney’s planned post-apocalyptic sci-fi film has added Kyle Chandler (Argo, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, The Wolf of Wall Street, Friday Night Lights).
Director/producer Clooney and Felicity Jones will also be starring in the film, which will be following a lonely scientist in the Arctic as he races to make contact with the crew of a spacecraft trying to return to Earth. Clooney will be the scientist and Chandler will play one of the astronauts.
The Netflix film is based on the 2016 novel Good Morning, Midnight by Lily Brooks-Dalton. The screenplay adaptation comes from Mark L. Smith, whose credits include The Revenant, Overlord and Vacancy.
Chandler was recently seen in Hulu miniseries Catch-22, which Clooney exec produced, directed and co-starred in. He’s also signed up to reprise his role as Mark Russell in the next Godzilla film, Godzilla vs. Kong.
