Garth Davis’ Sci-Fi Thriller ‘Foe,’

The story takes place in the near future when corporate domination and environmental degradation are wreaking havoc on the earth. Junior (Paul Mescal) and Hen (Saoirse Ronan) are a young couple who have been married for seven years and live alone on their remote farm. A visitor called Terrance (Aaron Pierre) arrives at their home one night, bearing shocking news: Junior has been chosen at random to fly to a vast, experimental space station circling Earth. What’s the most unusual aspect? Hen won’t miss him since she won’t be alone — even for a second — after he departs. Hen will be surrounded by familiar faces who will pressure her to make a life-altering decision.

Saoirse Ronan (Little Women), a four-time Oscar contender, and Paul Mescal (Normal People) were previously cast. Today, we can disclose that fast-rising British actor Aaron Pierre will take over for LaKeith Stanfield in the film.

Pierre, who starred in The Underground Railroad and Old, is on a roll, having just been cast in the Lion King prequel and as the lead in Netflix’s Rebel Ridge, replacing John Boyega, who left the film during production this summer. That project is expected to resume in the spring of next year.

Davis, who directed Lion, will direct a script he co-wrote with novelist Iain Reid, which is based on the latter’s science fiction novel. Filming is set to begin in Australia early next year.
