It’s going to be Prometheus meets Avatar although with a decidedly non sci-fi tale, as Idris Elba and Noomie Rapace, who starred in the former, are teaming up with the latter’s Sam Worthington for Alive Alone, according to THR.
Khurram Longi’s script has already had plenty of praise as it was included on the Black List and the UK’s Brit list of the best unproduced screenplays. The film will also be Longi’s directorial debut.
Elba will play ex-Guantanamo Bay detainee Jamal, who is now working as a taxi driver in New York. Rapace meanwhile is Sarah, a prostitute on the run from feared crime boss Murphy (Sam Worthington). When Sarah and Jamal’s ‘worlds collide, they unexpectedly find salvation in each other’.
It’s not clear when it will shoot.
