Some casting news has come in for Irish helmer Ruairi Robinson’s now filming fear flick The Last Days on Mars, based on a script by Clive Dawson. Read on to find out who will be spending their final seconds on the angry red planet.
Liev Schreiber (Scream 2, X-Men Origins: Wolverine) alongside Olivia Williams (The Sixth Sense, Rushmore), Romola Garai (One Day, Atonement), Elias Koteas (Shutter Island, Zodiac), Tom Cullen (Weekend), Goran Kostic (In the Land of Blood and Honey, Taken) and Johnny Harris (Snow White and the Huntsman) are all set to star.
The thriller is being produced by Qwerty Films’ Michael Kuhn (The Duchess, Being John Malkovich) and Andrea Cornwall (The Scouting Book for Boys).
The flick, which was previously titled The Animators, follows the story of an astronaut crew on Mars on the verge of a major breakthrough having collected rock specimens that reveal microscopic evidence of life. In their last hours on the planet, two astronauts go back to a cavernous valley on the surface of Mars to collect further evidence for their discovery, but a routine excavation turns deadly when one of them falls to his death and his body is taken as a host and re-animated by the very life form they sought to discover.
