Common and Jonny Lee Miller To Star In Sci-Fi Flick

November 16, 2018

Star of CBS' hit crime series Elementary Jonny Lee Miller and Grammy and Academy Award-winner Common are set to star in the sci-fi movie Nine Lives, Deadline reports.

The film is based on the 1968 novelette of the same name, written by Ursula K. Le Guin. The story follows two moon-based miners, Alvaro Guillen Martin and Owen Pugh who are desperate for human company, reluctantly get forced to work with a group of clones. When almost all of the clones die, the last remaining survivor ends up traumatized and isolated.

First-time writer-director Siri Rødnes and BAFTA-nominee Tom Basden will direct Nine Lives as Rødnes will also pen the script.

No release date for the film's release has been set.
