Alex Garland's Annihilation has its leads

Following the massive critical success of Alex Garland's Ex Machina last year, we're chomping at the bit to get a view of his new project - an adaptation of the novel Annihilation. The film, backed by Paramount is on target for a cinema arrival in 2017.

The great news is that we're hearing that the three leads are pretty much locked in with Natalie Portman, Gina Rodriguez and Tessa Thompson slated to sign on very soon.

The film, like the source material, will be a solid slice of grown-up sci-fi; exploring complex themes without the usual SF bombast and given Garland's track record we're pretty confident that this will be an essential watch.
