The Greatest Showman stars Hugh Jackman and Rebecca Ferguson are teaming up once again for a Sci-fi Thriller.
According to Deadline, Westworld executive producer Lisa Joy scripted and will direct her feature debut a sci-fi thriller titled Reminiscence. Jackman and Ferguson are finalizing their deals.
The script, which made the coveted Black List several years ago, is complex and layered, but essentially, Jackman will play a private eye who deals in recapturing vivid cherished memories for clients. He becomes vexed by one of those clients (Ferguson). It is set slightly in the future in a Miami that has been changed by global warming, with much of the city submerged underwater.
The project will be offered to major studios to bid on next week in Berlin.
Along with Joy, Jonathan Nolan, Michael De Luca and Aaron Ryder will produce a film that is being mounted as a co-production between Kilter Films, Michael De Luca Productions and FilmNation Entertainment. Production is slated to begin October 21 for a film that will shoot in New Orleans and Miami.
There is no release date in mind for the film.
