We’re getting the first look at Robert Redford in romantic sci-fi pic The Discovery ahead of its Sundance world premiere. This will be Redford’s first onscreen appearance at his Utah gathering since A Walk in the Woods with Nick Nolte two years ago.
Redford stars as Dr. Thomas Harbor, who’s made a scientific breakthrough that shocks the world and challenges everything we know about life and death. Charlie McDowell directs and co-penned the screenplay with Justin Lader (The One I Love). Jason Segel, Rooney Mara, Jesse Plemons, Riley Keough, and Ron Canada also star.
The film was produced by Alex Orlovsky of A-LO Films and James D. Stern of Endgame Entertainment, and was co-financed by Endgame Entertainment and Protagonist Pictures. Executive Producers are Julie Goldstein, Lucas Smith, Mike Goodridge, Dimitra Tsingou, Hunter Gray, McDowell and co-producer Erika Hampson.
The Discovery launches globally March 31 on Netflix.
