Story by Jack Foley

FELICITY Jones has joined the cast of George Clooney’s as-yet untitled adaptation of Good Morning, Midnight for Netflix.

The post-apocalyptic drama follows the parallel stories of Augustine (Clooney), a lonely scientist in the Arctic, as he races to make contact with the crew of the Aether spacecraft as they try to return home to Earth.

Deadline is reporting that Jones is all set to join the ensemble, although no details of character have yet been released.

Jones, who received an Oscar nomination for her lead performance in The Theory of Everything, next stars in the Tom Harper-directed Aeronauts film later this year.

Her other recent credits include On The Basis of Sex, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and A Monster Calls.

Two-time Oscar winner Clooney is attached to direct and star in the adaptation of Good Morning, Midnight, which is being adapted from Lily Brooks-Dalton’s 2016 novel by Mark L Smith (of The Revenant fame).

Production on the film is due to begin in October 2019.
