Danny Boyle's "Sun" Begins to Shine

by | August 24, 2005 | Comments

Thanks to ComingSoon.net for sharing a press release from Fox Searchlight regarding Danny Boyle‘s "Sunshine" — and the fact that it began shooting yesterday.

Plot: "Fifty years from now, the sun is dying, and mankind is dying with it. Our last hope: a spaceship and a crew of eight men and women. They carry a device which will breathe new life into the star. But deep into their voyage, out of radio contact with Earth, their mission is starting to unravel. There is an accident, a fatal mistake, and a distress beacon from a spaceship that disappeared seven years earlier. Soon the crew is fighting not only for their lives, but their sanity."

Cast: Rose Byrne ("Troy"), Cliff Curtis ("Whale Rider"), Chris Evans ("Fantastic Four"), Troy Garity ("After the Sunset"), Cillian Murphy ("28 Days Later"), Hiroyuki Sanada ("The Last Samurai"), Benedict Wong ("Dirty Pretty Things"), and Michelle Yeoh ("Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon").

Director: Danny Boyle, of "28 Days Later," "Millions," "Trainspotting," "The Beach," "Shallow Grave," and "A Life Less Ordinary." Screenplay by frequent Boyle collaborator Alex Garland, he of the $1 million "Halo" screenplay.

Also, it’s interesting to note that the project is now known as "Untitled Sunshine Project" and not the much prettier "Sunshine." Perhaps a title-change is in order for one reason or another.
