Fresh off last month’s news that George Clooney was to direct and star in Netflix’s adaptation of Good Morning, Midnight, now comes word that Felicity Jones has joined the picture.
Via Deadline, the Rogue One star has landed a to-be-revealed role opposite Clooney in the movie take on Lily Brooks-Dalton’s 2017 sci-fi tale.
For those not familiar with that hugely popular novel, the official blurb on Good Morning, Midnight reads:
The post-apocalyptic tale follows the parallel stories of Augustine, a lonely scientist in the Arctic, and an astronaut on board the Aether spacecraft, which is trying to return home to Earth, as Augustine races to make contact with the spaceship.
Clooney will be playing Augustine in the Netflix movie adaptation, with The Revenant’s Mark L. Smith penning the project.
Expect more on Good Morning, Midnight as it continues to develop.
