The handsome duo has officially been cast in director Charlie McDowell’s science fiction drama The Discovery, The Wrap reports. So which characters will the Hollywood heavyweights portray? Hoult is set to star as the son of a man who confirms that there’s life after death, while Mara will play his love interest in the flick. Set to begin shooting this January in Rhode Island, we expect the actors’ on-screen chemistry to spark instantly. After all, Hoult has previously dazzled with his acting chops and boyish smile in films like X-Men: Days of Future Past and A Single Man, while Mara, of course, has lent her talent and beauty to The Social Network and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
