John Cho has just locked in his next project, and Star Trek's current Sulu won't be the only familiar Trek name in it. Columbus will also feature Michelle Forbes -- Ensign Ro from Star Trek: The Next Generation -- as well as Haley Lu Richardson, Parker Posey and Rory Culkin. The film marks the writing-directing debut of the filmmaker known as ::kogonada.
According to the press release announcing the project, Cho plays Jin, the estranged son of a prominent architectural critic, who suddenly finds himself in the middle of nowhere. Forbes portrays Maria, a recovering addict and the single mother of Casey (Richardson), a young woman who finds solace in the architecture that surrounds her.
Columbus is currently shooting in Columbus, Indiana.
