First Look At Danny Boyle's Sci-Fi "Sunshine"

by | June 21, 2006 | Comments

Director Danny Boyle, helmer of "Trainspotting," "28 Days Later," and the Ebertfest pick "Millions," has a sci-fi thriller coming out next year, but you can catch sneak peek clips of the fantastic-looking spaceship saga — innocuously titled "Sunshine" — on the pic’s extensive production blog!

We’ve been looking forward to "Sunshine" ever since we first laid eyes on the production blog, wherein various members of the production team journaled throughout filming, offered peeks onto the set, and shared updates about the plot and the science behind it (in the future, the sun is dying, requiring a team of Earthlings to travel through space to jump-start it back to life; intrigue and twists ensue). Now, the "Sunshine" bloggers have given us the gift of video — specifically, a clip introduced by director Boyle containing snippets of scenes from the film, which is now in post-production.


A ship of scientists must revive the dying sun in "Sunshine"

If you’re not already familiar with the international cast of solar scientists, check out this lineup: you’ve got previous Boyle collaborator Cillian Murphy ("28 Days Later"), Chris "Fantastic Four" Evans, Japanese/international star Hiroyuki Sanada, "Crouching Tiger"’s Michelle Yeoh, plus Rose Byrne, Troy Garity, Cliff Curtis, and more. The script comes courtesy of Alex Garland, who wrote Boyle’s "28 Days Later," wrote the adapted-into-film novel "The Beach," and is penning the screenplay for 2008’s video game adaptation of "Halo."
