Just a few days after Promising Young Woman’s Carey Mulligan joined Netflix’s Spaceman with Adam Sandler, Deadline has revealed two more additions with Paul Dano (The Batman) and Kunal Nayyar (The Big Bang Theory) joining the film.
Emmy-winning Chernobyl director Johan Renck will helm Spaceman, which is based on Jaroslav Kalfar’s novel, with a screenplay adapted by Colby Day. There is no word on the roles Dano and Nayyar will play, but Mulligan will be the wife of Sandler’s astronaut protagonist.
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.”
