Cahill & Marling Reveal I Origins
Another sci-fi for Another Earth team

30 April 2013  |  Written by Owen Williams  |  Source: Deadline

It's always the same: you wait ages for a Brit Marling story and then two come along at once. Alongside the news elsewhere this morning about The Keeping Room, Marling will be re-teaming with her Another Earth honcho Mike Cahill for the oddly titled and entirely unpunctuated I Origins.

Like the excellent Another Earth, I Origins is an indie sci-fi tale, this time revolving around a scientist on the brink of a big discovery. His results, if proved correct, will be of historical significance, but depend on a young girl in India who is somehow the only person in the world who can verify them. The thrust of the film is reportedly the bringing together of international strangers with unlikely connections.

Quite where the sci-fi fits into that plot remains to be seen (presumably it's our man's world-rocking theory). We might reasonably expect mumblecore musing rather than FX spectacle, however.

Michael Pitt (Seven Psychopaths) is playing the scientist, with Marling as his lab partner. Steven Yuen (The Walking Dead), Archie Panjabi (The Good Wife) and Astrid Berges-Frisbey (Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) bulk up the rest of the cast.
