Elle Fanning and Diego Luna are now part of the cast of Clay Jeter’s sci-fi IO, which follows the story of girl’s coming of age while examining the dangers of humanity’s current relationship with the planet.
“We are so excited for Elle to bring her charisma and fearlessness to the demanding role of the tragically obsessed idealist Sam. And Diego’s chameleon-like versatility makes him a perfect choice for the secretive and enigmatic Micah. I’m really looking forward to a creative collaboration with these incredibly talented and committed actors to bring the characters of IO to life”, said the director.
Fanning is set to play a teen surviving as one of the last people on an abandoned post-cataclysmic Earth, who is racing to find a cure for her poisoned home world before the last shuttle off the planet to the distant human space colony leaves her stranded. Luna will play a complicated and mysterious refugee on his way to the shuttle launch who makes her question whether she can really alter Earth’s fate.
