Gillian Anderson (X-Files) has been cast along side Haley Joel Osment (The Sixth Sense), Rufus Sewell and Victor Garber in a sci-fi mystery called I’ll Follow You Down.
The movie is being directed by Richie Mehta, and the story is "about a scientist, Gabriel (Sewell) who mysteriously disappears during a business trip, devastating his wife Marika (Anderson) and young son Erol (Osment). Erol and his grandfather (Garber) years later make a shocking discovery about Gabriel’s whereabouts."
Producer Lee Kim had this to say about the film and the casting of Osment when it was first announced...
Richie has penned a script that tells an emotionally charged, thrilling story while staying true to the sci-fi genre. Our main challenge was to find the right actor to play the lead role of Erol – one that requires the perfect balance of innocence, honesty and intelligence; Haley provides just that.
I'm surprised that Anderson hasn't done more in her career. She's a great actress, that starred in one of the greatest TV series of all time. Maybe that was enough for her. It will be interesting to see how this movie turns out. I hope it's good!
