Leads Cast For New J.J. Abrams Sci-Fi Thriller
Another day, another J.J. Abrams sci-fi movie. The latest is God Particle, which has been gestating for a while but just found its two leads in David Oyelowo and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.

The new film is said to be about a "team of astronauts on a mission who make a terrifying discovery that challenges all they know about the fabric of reality, as they desperately fight for survival." So while it sounds like a run of the mill space-set thriller, there may be something going on below the surface. Given the timing of the casting, which is fresh off the heels of the success of another Abrams production, 10 Cloverfield Lane, some are speculating that God Particle may also end up fitting into the growing Cloverfield universe. Given that the movie sounds like it's going to be about aliens, might it be a prequel of sorts to the invasion that happens in the other Cloverfield movies?

As for the new film's stars, both are critically-acclaimed and have some serious sci-fi chops. Oyelowo had roles in Interstellar and Rise of the Planet of the Apes, while Mbatha-Raw has appeared in Jupiter Ascending and is rumored to be part of the cast for Star Wars: Episode VIII. So yeah, this looks like it could be another mark in the win column for Abrams.
