Oscar Isaac joins Alex Garland's Annihilation. I haven't read the book but from what I know of it, the only characters are the four women?

Gina retweeted something about him joining, so it's legit

There are flashbacks where Natalie's character interacts w/ her husband, who was a member of a previous expedition into Area X.

I'm about halfway through the novel, won't spoil it for anyone, but it'll be really interesting to see how this is filmed.

There's not much dialog, outside of narration that takes the form of Natalie's character's journal. And she spends a lot of time in solitude observing the biological ebb and flow of Area X.

Anyone else reading the novel?

Almost to the end of the book & haven't read the last page, but assuming Natalie's character survives, it would be cool if she revisited the pond in her childhood backyard.

Like, walked in though a wooden gate against the worn-out wooden siding of a rental house, though tall, sunburnt & blooming grass to the brown water of fungus and frogs, to run her hands through the water.

But then, when she stands up the lawn is manicured and the water blue. When she leaves the gate is new, the siding unworn, steps into her car starts the engine. Camera pans to a sign that reads, "For Lease."

That's how I imagine it, anyway. Or something like that.

It seems that Oscar Isaac, Alex Garland and Tessa Thompson are already in London:

Since the shooting would be located in this city (according to the latest reports), it is assumed that filming is imminent ....

It seems that the shooting could have started this week ... or at least the construction of the sets in South Forest, Windsor Great Park:

Interesting article about the novel and expectations about the film adaptation. Natalie's character seems to be really challenging:

This is the one project I didn't want Natalie to drop out of. I initially thought Jackie was going to film later so was worried schedules would clash.
I'm so excited for this.

Lol does make me laugh how she'll be starring with Tessa Thompson who is Thor's new love interest in Thor 3. How funny.

Still not seen pictures of the shooting .... but here are some curious pictures, which are part of the photographic research for the visual look of the film, and give us an idea of ​​how the movie will look like:

I didn't like this book as much as I hoped, but it was still good.
Natalie has the most interesting role, but Jennifer Jason Leigh's role is pretty good too. Whoever is playing the anthropologist has nothing to do, which is a shame.
