Ben Kingsley Attending Convention
Mark Duplass already has his badge

Ben Kingsley Attending Convention

While he’s attached to one high profile project featuring science fiction elements already (that would be Iron Man 3), it seems that Ben Kingsley is ready for more than one film boasting strange technology, even if Convention looks to be a little more low-key.

Cyrus co-writer / director Mark Duplass is on board to star in the film, which would see him as an inventor who brings his latest creation, a five-sided box, to a national event for box companies. While it’s initially a hit, and snapped up by a legend in the business (Kingsley) for mass production, there’s a catch. You see, every time Duplass creates the extra fold for the box, he tears a hole in the space-time continuum. Which means that a factory-level output would rip the world apart…

Don’t go expecting Michael Bay-level CG and crumbling cities, though, or at least not much of it: director Justin Reardon and writer Christopher Painter are working on a strictly indie level. But they are hoping to attract Jennifer Aniston to play Duplass’ sister, and are looking to set a start date.

Kingsley is on screen right now with The Dictator and has been at work on Ender’s Game. Duplass has Sundance pics Safety Not Guaranteed and Your Sister’s Sister awaiting release, and will next be seen in People Like Us.
