Oscar Isaac is loading up his schedule.

In addition to reuniting with Ex-Machina director Alex Garland, Isaac has also signed on for Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s follow-up to last year’s Me and Earl and the Dying Girl.

Titled A Foreigner, the true life story follows the murder of a Guatemalan man, who cleverly captured his own death on film and distributed the videos as a way to take down the killers’ widespread corruption.

Argo screenwriter Chris Terrio adapted the story from David Grann’s 2011 New Yorker article, “A Murder Foretold”, which “unravel[ed] the ultimate political conspiracy.”

At this time, there’s no start time or release date. Currently, Gomez-Rejon is working on Hulu’s Citizen and Isaac is flying around with BB-8 in Rian Johnson’s as-yet-titled Star Wars sequel.

However, Isaac will next appear in Bryan Singer’s latest blockbuster, X-Men: Apocalypse, due out May 27th via Fox.
