Brit Marling & Michael Pitt Join 'Another Earth' Director Mike Cahill's Next Film 'I Origins'

Since turning heads in 2011’s low-key sci-fi film “Another Earth,” actor/writer Brit Marling has appeared in other similarly small-scale takes on plots that are usually reserved for big studio pictures, her latest being the Zal Batmanglij-helmed thriller “The East.” Though it only hits theaters at the end of May, Marling has already lined up her next project, which reunites her with “Another Earth” helmer Mike Cahill.

Since turning heads in 2011’s low-key sci-fi film “Another Earth,” actor/writer Brit Marling has appeared in other similarly small-scale takes on plots that are usually reserved for big studio pictures, her latest being the Zal Batmanglij-helmed thriller “The East.” Though it only hits theaters at the end of May, Marling has already lined up her next project, which reunites her with “Another Earth” helmer Mike Cahill.

Deadline report that Cahill has lined up Marling, Michael Pitt, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey ("Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides"), Steven Yuen (“The Walking Dead”) and Archie Panjabi (“The Good Wife”) for “I Origins.” Unlike his previous collaboration with Marling, Cahill is handling the writing duties on his own. The film follows Pitt as “a molecular biologist who, together with his brilliant lab partner (Marling) uncovers startling evidence that may fundamentally change society as we know it.” Sounds suitably ambitious and like a worthy successor to “Another Earth,” which also dealt with a paradigm-shattering event, the existence of, well, another Earth.

There’s no timeline on production yet but judging on how quickly Marling and her collaborators have worked in the past, we wouldn’t be surprised to see this by next year.
