Berenice Marlohe, Keir Dullea Join ‘Valley of the Gods’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Berenice Marlohe (“Skyfall”) and Keir Dullea (“2001: A Space Odyssey”) have joined “Valley of the Gods” alongside Josh Hartnett, Charlotte Rampling and John Rhys-Davies, Variety has learned.

The high-concept fantasy film, which will begin shooting in May in Poland, Italy and Utah, is directed by Lech Majewski (“The Mill and the Cross”).

Royal Road Entertainment’s Filip Jan Rymsza is producing along with Majewski, who is producing on behalf of Angelus Silesius. Peter Safran is executive producing on behalf of the Safran Company and Jan Harlan is co-producing alongside Royal Road’s Carla Rosen-Vacher.

Harlan was Stanley Kubrick’s executive producer on “The Shining,” “Full Metal Jacket” and “Eyes Wide Shut.”

Joseph Runningfox (“Geronimo”) and Steven Skyler have joined the “Valley of the Gods” cast as well.

The story features the richest man on earth, a Navajo legend and a writer (Hartnett) who possesses an unbridled imagination and has the ability to alter reality. It involves three narratives about characters who attempt to escape the drama that follows when supernatural visions clash with reality.

Variety reported that the project was in the works a year ago. Majewski’s 2011 film “The Mill and the Cross” starred Rutger Hauer, Michael York and Charlotte Rampling.

French actress Marlohe first came to international attention when she was cast in “Skyfall” following French TV roles including “R.I.S. Police Scientifique” and “Medical Emergency.” She recently wrapped Joe Miale’s sci‐fi thriller “Revolt” opposite Lee Pace and Terrence Malick’s “Weightless” alongside Christian Bale, Michael Fassbender, Natalie Portman, Ryan Gosling and Rooney Mara.

Dullea is best known for portraying astronaut David Bowman in Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey” and “2010: The Year We Made Contact.” He also starred in “Infinitely Polar Bear.”
