In the movie, Pattinson will play a prison inmate who has strong technological skills. He’s enlisted for a space mission with other convicts, including Goth’s character.
Where the movie plot goes from there is subject to debate. Hollywood gossip site deadline.com reports that criminals on the space mission become the subjects of a human reproduction experiment.
But The Film & Media Foundation in Germany reported earlier in the week that the mission is a search for alternative energy sources in deep space.
The mission is so hazardous only death row inmates and those facing long prison terms are recruited for the flight. They have little chance of returning.
A storm of cosmic rays supposedly hits the ship causing “unimaginable” consequences, according to deadline.
French director Claire Denis is teaming with Jean-Pol Fargeau, Zadie Smith and Nick Laird to pen the script, which is reportedly still a work in progress. So, anything is possible.
“High Life” will be Denis’ first English-language picture.
Goth made her big-screen acting debut in the 2013 Lars von Trier erotic-drama. She appeared in a segment entitled “The Gun.” Her character, known as “P,” is the 15-year-old daughter of criminals, who is the protege of a sex addict played by Charlotte Gainsburg.
During production, she began dating Shia Labeouf, who also starred in the movie. Both her relationship and career took off after the film.
Goth recently finished production on Gore Verbinski’s lastest film, “A Cure For Wellness,” co-starring Dane DeHaan. She also appears in “Everest,” about a group of climbers who are stranded on the mountain during a fierce storm.
The film, which stars Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Robin Wright, Michael Kelly, Sam Worthington, Keira Knightley, Emily Watson and Jake Gyllenhaal, debuted last month.
Mia got into hot water earlier this year with the UK Advertising Standards Authority for appearing in fashion house Miu Miu ads that were deemed “sexually suggestive.”
Meanwhile, Pattinson has two films in the works. “The Childhood of a Leader is in the can but yet to be released. “The Lost City of Z” is currently filming.
