Chiwetel Ejiofor (The Lion King) has joined action thriller Infinite starring Mark Wahlberg.
Based on the novel The Reincarnationist Papers by D. Eric Maikranz is centered on the Cognomina, a secret society of people who possess total recall of their past lives.
Ejiofor will play a member of the Infinite — who are near immortals compiling experiences and skills over lifetimes into near superhuman abilities that they have used to drive history toward their own agenda on a longer timeline.
Mark Wahlberg stars as a troubled man who suffers from schizophrenia and is haunted by memories of two past lives when he stumbles upon the centuries-old secret society. Wahlberg replaced Chris Evans several months ago after Evans exited due to scheduling issues. Dylan O’Brien and Sophie Cookson have also been cast.
