Netflix have today announced, that George Clooney will direct and star in a as yet untitled adaptation of the Lily Brooks-Dalton novel “Good Morning, Midnight”. Set in a post-apocalyptic world “Good Morning, Midnight” follows the parallel stories of the sole surviving scientist in the Arctic, Augustine and the crew of spacecraft trying to return to Earth.
Mark L. Smith has adapted the screenplay, whilst Smokehouse Pictures’ Grant Heslov and Clooney will produce alongside Anonymous Content and Syndicate Entertainment, who sourced the material. Scott Stuber, head of Netflix’s film division said “The book is powerful and moving, and Mark’s adaptation is beautifully written. At its core, this is a story about human nature, and one that I know our global audiences will fall in love with, just like I did when I read it.”
Production for the film will begin in October.
