Fresh off receiving his first Emmy nomination for outstanding lead actor, Silicon Valley star Thomas Middleditch has lined up another gig, joining Keanu Reeves in the sci-fi film Replicas.

From a screenplay by Chad St. John, the sci-fi thriller centers on a scientist (Reeves) who, after a car accident kills his family, becomes obsessed with bringing them back to life. Alice Eve also is attached to play Reeves' wife.

Jeffrey Nachmanoff (Traitor) is helming the film, which is slated to shoot this summer. Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Reeves, Stephen Hamel and Ara Keshishian are producing.

Middleditch has played Pied Piper app founder Richard Hendricks on HBO’s hit comedy Silicon Valley for three seasons. The show, which has already been renewed for a fourth season, scored 11 Emmy nominations on Thursday, including its third in a row for outstanding comedy series.

On the feature side, the actor's credits include The Bronze and Jeff Baena’s upcoming comedy Joshy, which debuted at Sundance. He also will appear in Going Under with Jason Momoa and Bruce Willis. Middleditch is repped by WME, Kirsten Ames Management and attorney Isaac Dunham.
