One of the buzziest titles announced a couple of years ago, it’s been quite a while since we’ve heard anything about 65. The mysterious sci-fi thriller boasts the talents of A Quiet Place writers Scott Beck & Bryan Woods, plus Sam Raimi as a producer. And if that wasn’t enough of a hook, the film also stars Adam Driver in what is a very small cast.
Driver stars as Mills, an astronaut who crash-lands on a planet only to discover that he is stranded on prehistoric Earth, 65 million years ago. He’ll have to team up with the lone survivor and trek across dangerous terrain facing deadly creatures, including dinosaurs, for a chance at being rescued.
Also in the cast are Ariana Greenblatt, known for playing young Gamora in Avengers: Infinity War, and the ever-busy Chloe Coleman of Big Little Lies, My Spy, and the upcoming Dungeons & Dragons movie.
Beck and Woods’ screenplay for A Quiet Place got them noticed, but it was John Krasinski who got most of the credit then took the franchise over for himself. The success has led them to this opportunity, however. They previously directed a number of shorts and the 2015 horror Nightlight.
65 opens in theaters on March 10th 2023.
