Alex Garland’s next film to shoot in the UK

AvaAlex Garland’s next feature as writer/director, Annihilation, is set to shoot in the UK next year.

The film is based on Jeff VanderMeer’s 2014 novel of the same name which centres on a group of four scientific experts who lead an expedition into a dangerous region known simply as Area X.

A line producer, casting director and studio have been confirmed on the film – we will be naming them on Production Intelligence in the early part of next year so make sure you follow the project to receive updates.

The mighty Paramount Pictures is overseeing the feature; other names already verified on our site include the producers and UK production companies, along with the anticipated start date.

Garland is fresh from his triumph at the recent British Independent Film Awards (BIFAs) at which Ex Machina scooped Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best British Independent Film, and Outstanding Achievement in Craft.

Production Intelligence currently has over 370 projects listed in development; non-subscribers can click here for a demo.
