Disney's sci-fi thriller stars Bruce Willis

Radha Mitchell and Rosamund Pike have signed on to star opposite Bruce Willis in Disney’s sci-fi thriller “The Surrogates.”

Jonathan Mostow is directing the film from a Michael Ferris and John Brancato screenplay.

Based on a graphic novel by Robert Venditti and Brett Weldele, story is set in the near future, where humans live in isolation and interact vicariously through surrogate robots who are better-looking versions of themselves.

Shooting is scheduled to start in April in Boston.

Mandeville’s David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman are producing alongside Max Handelman and Elizabeth Banks.

Mitchell’s credits include “Feast of Love” and “Finding Neverland.” She has a number of films awaiting release including “Henry Poole Is Here” opposite Luke Wilson.

Pike most recently appeared in the psychological thriller “Fracture.” She next stars in the drama “Fugitive Pieces,” which bows in the U.S. next month.
