Nicholas Hoult & Michael Shannon To Star In Sci-Fi Thriller YOUNG ONES

Beast vs Zod? Hoult (X-Men: DOFP, Warm Bodies) and Shannon (Man Of Steel) will join Elle Fanning (Super 8) and Kodi Smit-McPhee (Let Me In) in a new futuristic thriller. Read on for more details..

As young Nicholas Hoult's star continues to rise with lead roles in the likes of Jack The Giant Slayer and Warm Bodies, Variety report that he is also set to headline a new sci-fi flick alongside General Zod himself, Michael Shannon. The movie, which is apparently "set in a violent near-future where water has become the most precious -- and fastest-dwindling -- resource on the planet", will be written and directed by Gwyneth Paltrow's brother Jake and produced by Subotica's Tristan Orpen Lynch and Spier Films' Michael Auret, who reckons "Jake's engaging tale of hope and courage in a neo-realistic dystopia will have universal appeal." The film has actually already begun production in South Africa's Northern Cape desert.
