Variety is reporting that Juliette Binoche (The English Patient) and Andre Benjamin (Jimi: All Is By My Side) have joined Robert Pattinson (Good Time) and Mia Goth (A Cure For Wellness) in High Life, the English-language debut of director Claire Denis (White Material, 35 Shots of Rum).
The film follows a group of convicts who reduce their time behind bars in exchange for embarking on a dangerous mission to a black hole. Also featuring in the cast are Lars Eidinger (Clouds of Sils Maria), Agata Buzek (Redemption), Ewan Mitchell (The Last Kingdom), Jessie Ross (The Frankenstein Chronicles) and Claire Tran (Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets).
“It is a rare honor to work with Claire Denis,” said producer Andrew Lauren. “She has put together an incredible cast for what is not only her first English language feature but also her first sci-fi film after making 12 visionary films in French. This is also our first international co-production and we are committed to working with our partners to make Claire’s film a reality.”
