Will Smith has been incredibly picky about what projects he’s starred in recently, only making a few films in the past few years. However recently it was announced he was in talks for the sci-fi thriller Brilliance.
Now the actor has some company, as TheWrap reports Noomi Rapace has bagged the other lead role in the movie.
David Koepp (Jurassic Park) came up with the script, based on the Marcus Sakey novel. The book is set in a world where special individuals known as ‘brilliants’ have heightened abilities. The plot follows a government agent whose ‘brilliant’ gift is tracking down terrorists. However he may have met his match when tasked to find a dangerous man in Wyoming with his own set of special skills.
It’s not clear exactly who Rapace will play.
Julius Onah is set to direct, although it’s not clear when it will shoot.
