Rooney Mara and Nicholas Hoult Team For ‘The One I Love’ Director’s Sci-Fi Drama ‘The Discovery’

Written by on October 27, 2015 


One of the primary pleasures of Charlie McDowell‘s directorial debut The One I Love was his ability to realistically inject a dose of science-fiction into a relatable romantic drama. While that might be a spoiler, if you have yet to see the Mark Duplass and Elisabeth Moss-led film in the year or so since its release, it’s certainly recommended.

The Discovery, which will star Rooney Mara and Nicholas Hoult, is a “love story set one year after the existence of the afterlife is scientifically verified. Hoult will play the son of the scientist who made the discovery, with Mara playing a woman whose life is tinged by a tragic past, with whom Hoult’s character falls in love,” Deadline reports.

Set up with independent financing, from Endgame Entertainment and Protagonist Pictures, we can hopefully still expect a small, intimate scale for McDowell. As for Mara (who worked as an uncredited costume designer for her longtime boyfriend’s debut) and Hoult, they are both coming off two of the year’s best films, Carol and Mad Max: Fury Road, respectively, so it’s a team-up we can’t wait to see, backed by quite an intriguing concept.
