Aaron has replaced LaKeith Stanfield in the project, which has been acquired by Amazon Studios.
Davis will helm the film from a script he co-wrote with Reid. The project is billed as a "taut, sensual, psychological mind-bender" set in the near future where corporate power and environmental decay are ravaging the planet.
Junior (Mescal) and Hen (Ronan) are a young couple married seven years and living a solitary life on their isolated farm. One night, a stranger named Terrance (Pierre) knocks on their door, bringing news that throws their lives into turmoil: Junior has been randomly selected to travel to a large, experimental space station orbiting Earth. The most unusual part? Arrangements have already been made so that when he leaves, Hen won't have a chance to miss him, because she won't be left alone. Hen will have familiar company that pushes her to make a life-changing decision, as per the official plotline.
The film will start production in Australia in 2022. Foe will be backed by Kerry Kohansky-Roberts of Anonymous Content Studios, Davis through his I Am That shingle, and See-Saw Films' Emile Sherman and Iain Canning.
