Hoult will play a scientist who discovers that heaven – or at least a version of it – might actually be real, a place where he will meet and fall for Mara, a woman whose past is tinged with tragedy. We imagine his big discovery ties into that somehow.
Charlie McDowell is directing this one, working with his The One I Love (2014) co-writer Justin Lader to once again produce the script. He will have the cameras rolling this January in Rhode Island.
Hoult recently worked on Equals alongside Kristen Stewart (The Runaways), and can currently be seen in Kill Your Friends . He will be also back with his mutant colleagues in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days Of Future Past (2014) follow-up X-Men: Apocalypse, which arrives 19 May next year. Mara is also on screens now in Pan and stars with Cate Blanchett (The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button) in the acclaimed Carol, which is out on 27 November.
