Australian actress Rose Byrne (Sunshine, 28 Weeks Later) is set to star opposite Nicolas Cage in Knowing, a sci-fi thriller from director Alex Proyas (Dark City, I, Robot). According to The Hollywood Reporter:
Byrne will play the daughter of a woman who buried a 1962 time capsule bearing the dates of the assassinations of historical figures, the hotel fire death of the wife of a professor (Cage) and an imminent world apocalypse. After the professor discovers its contents and alerts her, the initially skeptical Byrne begins remembering strange incidents from her childhood.
Sounds plenty weird, but it should fit right into Proyas' oeuvre. The screenplay was written by Ryne Douglas Pearson with revisions by Juliet Snowden, Stiles White, Stuart Hazeldine, and Proyas. Production begins March 25th in Melbourne, Australia.
