Agyness Deyn set for The Titan

Soon to be seen in the Coen brothers' (Inside Llewyn Davis Hail, Caesar!, former model Agyness Deyn (Pusher) has just set up her next acting role. News arrives via Deadline that she is set to join the cast of The Titan along with Diego Boneta (Rock Of Ages) and Aleksander Jovanovic (Shirt Sharp Shock). Sam Worthington (Avatar) is already aboard as the film's lead, supported by Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service), Taylor Schilling (Orange Is The New Black) and Tom Wilkinson (Michael Clayton).

There is a whiff of the familiar about that title for Worthington and Deyn, both of whom were previously in Clash Of The Titans (2010). No krakens will be released this time, however, with the focus on a military family participating in a revolutionary experiment about genetic evolution in space.

There are no details of the cast's specific roles in the film as yet, plus no mention of Ruth Wilson (Luther), who was previously reported as attached.

Voltage Pictures (The Hurt Locker) are behind the film, with Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (Sinister), Rory Aitken and Ben Pugh (Welcome To The Punch), and Arash Amel (Grace Of Monaco) producing. Amel also came up with the pitch that Max Hurwitz (Hell On Wheels) based the screenplay on. Lennart Ruff will make his directorial debut with the film.

Pre-production is underway, with shooting due to start imminently. The Titan is yet to receive a release date, but we will see Deyn in Hail, Caesar! when it arrives on 26 February, and Worthington in Mel Gibson's (Apocalypto) Hacksaw Ridge sometime later this year.
