Days after signing on to portray Mexican film icon Maria Felix in a new biopic, Eiza Gonzalez (Baby Driver) has now added another project to her upcoming slate in Netflix’s sci-fi series The Three-Body Problem.
The series is based upon Chinese author Liu Cixin’s sci-fi book trilogy and is being adapted by Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, along with writer Alexander Woo (The Terror: Infamy) and Rian Johnson (Star Wars: The Last Jedi).
Gonzalez – who is coming off a busy 2021 with appearances in I Care A Lot and Godzilla vs. Kong – becomes the first addition to the cast of the series, which marks Benioff and Weiss’ first project since the conclusion to HBO’s Game of Thrones.
