By February 2021, Michael Cera and Jeff Goldblum entered negotiations to star in the director’s next film, which was now described as being about a “group of brainy teenagers.” Tilda Swinton was the first person to officially join the cast, doing so in June 2021.
Principal photography, originally set for Rome, took place in Spain between August and October 2021. Several sets in Chinchón, resembling a desert landscape and a mock train station, were used for the shoot.
