Feb 18, 2023

Emma Roberts and Laurence Fishburne are set to star in an upcoming sci-fi thriller film project The Astronaut. In the film, Roberts will play astronaut Sam Walker “who is found miraculously alive in a punctured capsule floating deep off the coast of the Atlantic Ocean.” Fishburne will play General William Harris in the movie, who “arranges for her to be placed under intense NASA surveillance in a high security house for rehabilitation and medical testing. When disturbing occurrences begin happening around the property, Walker fears something extraterrestrial has followed her back to Earth.”That sounds like it could be a fun movie! It’s being produced by A Quiet Place and The Purge producer Brad Fuller and production is set to start later this year in Ireland with Jess Varley (Phobias) making her solo writing and directorial debut.Varley said in a statement: “This story is very close to my heart and I’m profoundly grateful it’s resonated with such an immensely accomplished team of creatives. I couldn’t be more excited for audiences to fasten their seatbelts and go on this thrilling ride with us!”Highland COO Delphine Perrier added: “We are delighted to be working with such talented actors as Emma Roberts and Laurence Fishburne. They are phenomenal performers and a huge draw for international audiences and buyers alike. We are thrilled to also be working with producer Brad Fuller who continues to be a guiding force behind some of today’s most successful genre films.”Fuller simply said: “I was inspired by Jess’ vision and handle on the material and I’m thrilled to be working with her.”Source: Deadline
