Robert Redford and Rooney Mara are teaming up to bring Hollywood to Rhode Island. That’s the word from Steve Feinberg, executive director of the Rhode Island Film and Television Office.

Redford and Mara will star in "The Discovery," a science-fiction love story set in a world where the existence of the afterlife is scientifically proven.

Redford returns to the Ocean State for the first time since his lead role in "The Great Gatsby," the 1974 movie filmed in Newport, adapted from F. Scott Fitzgerald's Jazz Age novel.

Filming on "The Discovery" begins later this month and in April.
