Gina Rodriguez is ready to annihilate Hollywood…
The 31-year-old Puerto Rican Golden Globe-winning actress is in talks to star opposite Natalie Portman in the sci-fi film Annihilation.
The post-apocalyptic horror adventure film will be helmed by Ex Machina‘s Alex Garland.
The feature is an adaptation of a book by Jeff Vander Meer.
The story follows a biologist, to be played by Portman, as she embarks on a four-person expedition into Area X, a territory cut off from civilization. While there, she must deal with a mysterious contamination, disappearing colleagues, a deadly animal and a being known as the Crawler, all while searching for clues regarding her husband’s disappearance.
Garland wrote the script, adapted from Vander Meer’s book, which hit stores in February 2014 and is the first in a trilogy.
Rodriguez stars on the CW‘s Jane the Virgin.
