Oscar Isaac to Star in ‘Life Itself’ for FilmNation

Oscar Isaac is attached to star in the Dan Fogelman-penned “Life Itself.”

The film is a co-production between Temple Hill and FilmNation and Fogelman is also on board to direct.

Life Itself” is a multi-generational love story that weaves together a number of characters whose lives intersect over the course of several decades with Isaac at the center of the story.

FilmNation will fully finance, produce, and handle international sales for the film. Temple Hill’s Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey will produce with FilmNation and Fogelman.

WME is handling the U.S. distribution rights. The script had been in Hollywood for some time, but following the success of Fogelman’s new NBC series “This Is Us,” which was one of the first pilots to get a full-season order, several of Fogelman’s past IPs began to gain steam, including “Life Itself.”

Isaac’s star has continued to rise in Hollywood over the past year. He’s already filmed Alex Garland’s “Annihilation” and George Clooney’s “Suburbicon.” He is also set to reprise his role of Poe Dameron in the next “Star Wars” trilogy pic, after starring in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” late last year.

He is repped by UTA and Inspire Entertainment. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
