James Bond star Daniel Craig is in talks to join Julianne Moore in Blindness, a drama based on Nobel Prize winner Jose Saramago’s acclaimed novel.
The story chronicles an epidemic of blindness that sweeps through an unnamed contemporary city and pushes society to the brink of breakdown.
Brazilian filmmaker Fernando Meirelles (The Constant Gardener) is directing the Focus Features International movie, which does not yet have a U.S. distribution deal.
Craig next appears in New Line Cinema’s The Golden Compass and Warner Bros. Pictures’ The Invasion.
Moore, whose upcoming credits include Next and Savage Grace, recently wrapped a Broadway run in David Hare’s The Vertical Hour.
