As of right now details on the sci-fi movie are being kept secret, however there are reports that auditions took place in the UK in December.

Last year Rooney insisted that a break from her career may be on the cards after making a number of films in quick succession.

She explained: "I’m a workaholic and I really don’t know how to relax. But I do want to take a break and not think about work at all.

"I think it’s good for actors to have other things that they’re interested in.

"I want to learn ballroom dancing. I have hidden rhythm."
