Another Earth Duo Re-Team For I Origins

Brit Marling and Mike Cahill

Mike Cahill and current Indie darling Brit Marling are re-teaming after blowing up the indie festival circuit with their sci-fi drama “Another Earth” in 2011. (“Another Earth” is one of those sci-fi in premise only movies, but is really indie drama wrapped up with a sci-fi coating.)

Another Earth (2011) Movie PosterThe duo will once again join forces for “I Origins”, with Cahill set to direct and Marling starring. Michael Pitt will play the film’s male lead, “a molecular biologist who, together with his brilliant lab partner (Marling) uncovers startling evidence that may fundamentally change society as we know it.”

If you consider what the duo did with “Another Earth”, I suspect that whole “fundamentally change society” thing will just be an excuse to explore more indie drama stuff. I could be wrong, of course.

Besides Pitt and Marling, “I Origins” will also co-star “The Walking Dead’s” Steven Yuen and “The Good Wife’s” Archie Panjabi. Actress Astrid Bergès-Frisbey (“Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”) rounds out the cast.

Good to see Yuen expanding his CV past slaying zombies.

You can probably expect the film in 2014 or thereabouts.
