/ 08:41 PM June 23, 2019

The Amazon Studios production will be written and directed by Mike Cahill (“I Origins”, “Another Earth”). Cahill also directed the pilots of “The Magicians”, “The Path” and “Rise”.

The science fiction drama follows recently divorced Greg (Owen Wilson), whose life is falling apart when he meets the charming Isabel (Salma Hayek).

Isabel, who lives on the streets, is convinced that the polluted, broken world around them is not reality but an ugly simulation taking place inside the beautiful, peaceful “real” world of bliss. Though skeptical at first, Greg starts to think there may be something to this conspiracy theory.

Endgame Entertainment’s James D. Stern will produce the project, with Lucas Smith and Marsha Swinton on board as executive producers.


Hayek was most recently seen in “The Hummingbird Project” with Jesse Eisenberg and Alexander Skarsgård, as well as in the critically-acclaimed “Beatriz at Dinner”. She will next star alongside Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne in comedy “Limited Partners”, and “The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard” where she reprises her role as Sonia Kincaid opposite Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds.

Wilson most recently starred in “Wonder” with Julia Roberts and Jacob Tremblay and “Father Figures” alongside Ed Helms, Christopher Walken, J.K. Simmons and Glenn Close. RGA/JB
