Oscar Isaac is set to reunite with “Ex Machina” Director Alex Garland for the film “Annihilation.” Isaac joins a cast of females that include Natalie Portman, Gina Rodriguez, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Tessa Thompson.

The movie centers around a biologist played by Natalie Portman. She seeks answers to her husband’s disappearance and she volunteers for a government expedition into the quarantined area or environmental disaster zone. What she discovers, however, is a pristine wilderness, and a mysterious dark force.

This is Garland’s second directorial effort and it is also written by Garland himself. Scott Rudin and Andrew Macdonald are producing the project. Paramount will distribute.

“Annihilation” is set to begin shooting later this spring out in London with no release date set as of yet.
