Actress Isabelle Fuhrman, who stars as Clove in The Hunger Games but is probably best known from the title role in Orphan, has joined the cast of M. Night Shyamalan’s After Earth for Columbia Pictures, according to THR.
The story centres on Will Smith and his son Jaden Smith, who crash land on earth years after the planet was deemed uninhabitable for humans. After the crash, it’s up to the son, who is viewed as a failed warrior, to save his father. Isabelle Fuhrman is playing Rayna, a friend of Jaden Smith’s character. Zoë Kravitz is also onboard to play Will Smith’s daughter, while Sophie Okonedo plays his wife.
M. Night Shyamalan is directing After Earth, which was previously titled 1000 A.E., from a script by Gary Whitta. Production is scheduled to start in March, on location in Utah and Pennsylvania.
