Norwegian actor Aksel Hennie has been added to God Particle, the upcoming film that is to be produced by J.J. Abrams (Star Wars).

Hennie is no stranger to big American productions – last year he was a navigator on the Martian Ship Ares III in The Martian, which starred Matt Damon. God Particle is based on the Higgs Boson and follows the shocking discovery that forces a team of astronauts aboard a space station to fight for survival while their reality has been altered.

It is currently unknown who Hennie will play, and the film is released in cinemas next year.
