Jennifer Joins Dark Matter
Posted By:

Announced back in March, Apple's multiverse series Dark Matter starring Australia's Joel Edgerton has added Jennifer Connelly to the cast as his wife.

With Snowpiercer having been cancelled in June (though one more season still to come) her dance card opened up.

Note that this is completely unrelated to the SyFy Dark Matter series.

Apple's Dark Matter is based on a book with its author Blake Couch to serve as showrunner.

The series will follow Jason Dessen (played by Edgerton), a physicist, professor, and family man who — one night while walking home on the streets of Chicago — is abducted into an alternate version of his life. Wonder quickly turns to nightmare when he tries to return to his reality amid the multiverse of lives he could have lived. In this labyrinth of mind-bending realities, he embarks on a harrowing journey to get back to his true family and save them from the most terrifying, unbeatable foe imaginable: himself.

Dark Matter doesn't have an ETA but will be an Apple TV+ series.
