David Oyelowo is the latest star in talks to join George Clooney's upcoming Netflix film "Good Morning, Midnight."

The "Selma" star is circling the project, which Clooney is starring in and directing. "The Revenant writer" Mark L. Smith adapted Lily Brooks-Dalton’s novel, a post-apocalyptic narrative that follows the parallel stories of Augustine (Clooney), a lonely scientist in the Arctic, and the Aether spacecraft that is trying to return home to Earth, as Augustine races to make contact with the ship's crew.

Already reportedly on board are Felicity Jones and Kyle Chandler. It's unknown what their roles might be, though Jones is likely playing Mission Specialist Sullivan.

Oyelowo most recently starred in and executive produced the BBC and PBS Masterpiece six-part adaptation of “Les Miserables."
