Megan Fox to the play astronaut in suspense thriller Aurora

Megan Fox (“Transformers”, “Jennifer’s Body”) will star in suspense thriller “Aurora” for Arclight films.

The company has joined forces with Jordan Gertner and Toby Gibson to produce and finance a film in the vein of Sandra Bullock starrer “Gravity”.

Lazar Bodroza will direct from a Pete Bridges script.

Filming is set to start in May 2020 in Serbia.

“Aurora“ tells the story of a female astronaut stationed in outer space to monitor solar storms that endanger earth. She discovers shock waves from solar storms are bending time pushing her into an emotional and psychological struggle with her past and present.

“We are delighted to continue championing stories with strong females at the helm. Aurora is a beautiful action-packed visual feast set in space and Megan is perfectly cast to play a character battling demons from her past. We could not be happier to be working with Jordan, Toby and Lazar Bodroža once again to bring this beautiful and mesmerizing story to life,” said Hamilton.

“I am thrilled to be working with such talented artists on Aurora. Lazar Bodroža is a true visionary who will create a world we have yet to see before and Megan such an incredibly talented actor, will undoubtedly bring an awe-inspiring performance here. Really looking forward to not only making this film but actually seeing it!,” said Gertner.
