Cillian Murphy and Natalie Press will star in the sci-fi feature Telepathy, to be directed by Lesley Manning, says Production Weekly.

The film, written by Stephen Volk, tells the story of Josef and Viktor Zalenski, estranged identical twin brothers who are chosen by the Russian Government as the subjects of a top-secret experiment to test the powers of telepathy as a viable form of communication between earth and outer space.

Miranda Richardson and Sam Neill are also starring in the film which is expected to begin shooting in October.
