Promising Young Woman star and Academy Award nominee Carey Mulligan has joined the high-profile Adam Sandler-led "Spaceman" at Netflix.
Spaceman follows "an astronaut (Sandler) sent to the edge of the galaxy to collect mysterious ancient dust. He soon finds his earthly life falling to pieces, and he turns to the only voice who can help him try to put it back together. It just so happens to belong to a creature from the beginning of time lurking in the shadows of his ship."
Spaceman, a project that was previously titled The Spaceman of Bohemia. Spaceman marks Mulligan's fifth collaboration with the streaming giant following the four-time Oscar-nominated period drama Mudbound, The Dig, in which she stars alongside Ralph Fiennes and Lily James, the upcoming Bradley Cooper-directed movie Maestro, and the mini-series Collateral, which finds Mulligan as a London-based detective.
Johan Renck of the Emmy-winning Chernobyl fame is on board to helm the movie for Netflix, with the screenplay having been adapted by playwright Colby Day.
