Alex Garland, reduce dal successo di Ex Machina, dirigerà l’adattamento del romanzo Annihilation di Jeff VanderMeer.
E’ il primo capitolo di una trilogia sci-fi. Nel cast ci saranno Jennifer Jason Leigh, Natalie Portman, Gina Rodriguez e Tessa Thompson. Quattro donne alla scoperta della misteriosa Area X.
Area X has been cut off from the rest of the continent for decades. Nature has reclaimed the last vestiges of human civilization. The first expedition returned with reports of a pristine, Edenic landscape; the second expedition ended in mass suicide, the third expedition in a hail of gunfire as its members turned on one another. The members of the eleventh expedition returned as shadows of their former selves, and within weeks, all had died of cancer. In Annihilation, the first volume of Jeff VanderMeer’s Southern Reach trilogy, we join the twelfth expedition.
They arrive expecting the unexpected, and Area X delivers ― they discover a massive topographic anomaly and life forms that surpass understanding ― but it’s the surprises that came across the border with them and the secrets the expedition members are keeping from one another that change everything.
