Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Social Network) leads an all-star cast in The Discovery, heading to Netflix in 2017.

Mara stars opposite Robert Redford (Lions for Lambs), Jason Segel (The Five-Year Engagement, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and Riley Keough (The Girlfriend Experience) in the sci-fi romantic thriller directed by Charlie McDowell (The One I Love).

The feature-length film is set in the near future, one year following scientific proof of the afterlife.

Redford portrays the scientist who made the discovery, with Segel portraying his son. Mara takes on the role of a woman “haunted by a tragic past,” whom Segel’s character falls in love with.

Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos commented on the multi-faceted story, saying, “To describe the story as original doesn’t begin to capture the world that Charlie (McDowell) has created that will envelop you,” reports ComingSoon.net.

Sarandos goes on to talk about the film’s reach, saying, “Our global viewers are going to love this film.”

There are a lot of elements going on with this project. We’re interested to see how the plot falls into place.
