Let Me In
star Kodi Smit-McPhee
is quite busy little guy these days.
Just in case you’re wondering why, here’s the big casting news: McPhee will star in an upcoming Ari Folman
‘s futuristic sci-fi film titled The Congress
He will join the cast that already includes Robin Wright, Danny Huston, Harvey Keitel
and Paul Giamatti
In an interview McPhee said: “I’m also doing a film called The Congress which is just in the rehearsal process and I think next week we’ll be shooting. I don’t really know how to explain it, I think it’s sci-fi and futuristic.”
The Congress is an adaptation of the novel The Futurological Congress
by Stanislaw Lem
, who also wrote Solaris
, which has been twice adapted to film.
As we said, the movie will be directed by Ari Folman, whose last film was the animated docu-drama Waltz With Bashir
Here’s a little The Congress
description: “An aging, out of work actress struggles to make ends meet and provide care for her disabled son. Times are tough until she is offered one last job. A major studio will scan her body – they will own her image and likeness and use it anyway they want. It’s a huge paycheck, but there’s a catch: she’ll never be able to act again. The ramifications of her decision have far-reaching effects in the future that she could never imagine.”
At this moment we know that Robin Wright stars as a struggling actress, and, we guess that McPhee will star as her disabled son.
With every new detail about the roles we’ll be back, and you – stay tuned!
