Farmiga has (at least) two nominations for that performance, including a Golden Globe, and a Screen Actor's Guild Award.
If cast, Farmiga will play the communications officer controlling Gyllenhaal as he travels through time and space. Monaghan has been cast as Gyllenhaal's love interest. Gyllenhaal plays a soldier assigned to an experimental government program investigating a terrorist incident who finds himself in the body of an unknown commuter reliving a harrowing train bombing until he can find out who is responsible for it.
She's been a longtime favorite of mine, way back from when she was a cop in UC: Undercover. I prefer to forget that awful Roar show where I first saw her, opposite the late Heath Ledger. She's got a presence that can be equally fragile and tough, sometimes at the same time. She's one of those actors whose presence in a film makes me want to see it.
Farmiga's got a long and eclectic history of choosing interesting projects such as Dummy, Quid Pro Quo, Orphan and Joshua.
I was already looking forward to Duncan Jones' next project, but now, I'm even more excited. What do you think about the cast?
