Deadline is reporting that director Neil Burger (Divergent, The Upside) is assembling a rather impressive cast for his upcoming sci-fi thriller Voyagers.
Colin Farrell (Dumbo), Lily-Rose Depp (Yoga Hosers), Tye Sheridan (Ready Player One) and Fionn Whitehead (Dunkirk) are all officially on board the film, while Isaac Hempstead Wright (Game of Thrones), Kelvin Harrison Jr. (Mudbound), Chante Adams (Roxanne Roxanne) and Madison Hu (Bizaardvark) are in advanced talks.
The film will present a Lord of the Flies-style story, following 30 children who are sent out into space on a multi-generational mission to populate a new planet. However, when the captain is killed, the youngsters descend into chaos and assemble into various tribes as they surrender to their most feral impulses.
Production on Voyagers is set to get underway in June.
