Promising Young Woman star Carey Mulligan, who recently landed a Best Actress Oscar nomination, has joined Adam Sandler’s latest Netflix film project Spaceman. This isn’t your typical silly Adam Sandler comedy, though, this one actually seems like it’ll tell a strong story.
The movie is based on Jaroslav Kalfar’s novel, and the story 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.”
Mulligan will play the wife of Sandler’s character and the movie will be directed by Chernobyl helmer Johan Renck the script of which was adapted by Colby Day.
The last couple of films I’ve seen with Mulligan have been great! I loved both the Netflix film The Dig as well as Promising Young Woman. It’ll be interesting to see what this Spaceman film project has in store for her.
