Next time moviegoers glimpse Agyness Deyn up on the silver screen, she’ll be rubbing shoulders with a posse of A-listers in Hollywood’s Golden Age for Joel and Ethan Coen’s soon-to-be-released dramedy Hail, Caesar!, though Deadline reports that the actress has already lined up her next project.
Joining Lennart Ruff’s sci-fi movie The Titan, Deyn will star opposite Clash of the Titans co-star Sam Worthington, Sofia Boutella, Taylor Schilling, Tom Wilkinson and fellow newcomers Diego Boneta and Aleksander Jovanovic. Less a Greek-inspired epic and more an “elevated sci-fi”, Ruff’s new feature looks set to propel viewers into the not-so-distant future, one which charts the journey of a military family at the forefront of a groundbreaking experiment that has deep ramifications for all of humanity.
