EXCLUSIVE: Diego Boneta, Aleksander Jovanovic and Agyness Deyn have boarded the cast of The Titan opposite Sam Worthington, Taylor Schilling and Tom Wilkinson. Set in a not-too-distant future, the story tracks the journey of a military family that is relocated to take part in a groundbreaking experiment of man’s genetic evolution into space.
Lennart Ruff directs the project, an elevated sci-fi feature produced by Brian Kavanaugh-Jones’ Automatik, Ben Pugh and Rory Aitken’s 42 and Arash Amel. Max Hurwitz (Hell On Wheels) wrote the screenplay based on a original story by Amel (Grace Of Monaco). The film starts shooting February 1 in Gran Canaria.
Voltage Pictures is handling international sales, with CAA handling domestic sales. Leon Clarance and Motion Picture Capital will produce and fully finance. Fred Berger is onboard as an exec producer.
Boneta is a Mexican singer and actor who has starred in Scream Queens and Rock Of Ages. He is one of the few Latin artists to have sold out Madison Square Garden, a testament to his crossover appeal. He is repped by Gersh and Grandview.
Jovanovic previously worked with Automatik and 42 on Eran Creevy’s Collide. He is repped by Felix de Wolfe and Agentur Inka Stelljes.
Deyn, a former model, can next be seen in the Coen brothers’ Hail, Caesar!, which opens the Berlin Film Festival. She is repped by UTA and Independent Talent Group.
