Default Lucy in the Sky (2019)



After conquering the wilderness together, Fox Searchlight and Reese Witherspoon are teaming up again as the studio has acquired the original spec script “Pale Blue Dot” with Witherspoon attached to star.

The story explores the theory that astronauts who spend long periods of time staring at the Earth from space begin to lose their sense of reality when they return home.

casting an actor first and then finding a script to fit and a director to shoot it almost never turns out good.

Witherspoon must be footing the bill for this, because I don't see her as being enough of a presence to justify a studio building a movie around her on its own.

Agreed - shes not that great anyways. At that point of her career where shes cashing in on whats left of her ability to "cash in". Like a retirement account boost type of thing. Bleh.

The idea is solid and Im a sucker for GOOD sci fi but as you said - when they do stuff out of order it rarely works out.

Oh well.

Big Little Lies’: Reese Witherspoon Backs Out Of ‘Pale Blue Dot’ As HBO Miniseries Nears Second Installment

Quote:
Reese Witherspoon is stepping back from Pale Blue Dot, the Fox Searchlight sci-fi pic from Noah Hawley that she had intended to produce and star in. The project, which came together in February, is based on a spec by Brian C Brown and Elliott DiGuiseppi and tells the story of a female astronaut who, upon returning to Earth from a mission in space, begins to slowly unravel and lose touch with reality.

Witherspoon’s exit, confirmed today, only fuels the rumors the the long-gestating potential Season 2 of HBO’s Emmy-winning limited series Big Little Lies is getting closer to reality. Earlier today, our sister publication TVLine reported sources saying that the network is eyeing a spring 2018 production start.

Sources say that the cast has not been locked yet to return but talks are underway. There also is a search for a new director.

Yesterday, Deadline reported that Apple landed the hot morning show drama series project executive produced by and starring Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston with a two-season order. Production on that — two 10-episode seasons — would most likely start after a Big Little Lies shoot.

The drumbeat for a second season of Big Little Lies has grown since the first installment of the adaptation of Liane Moriarty’s novel cleaned up a the Emmys, winning eight in all including Best Limited Series (Witherspoon earned a statuette as an executive producer) and Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for star/exec producer Nicole Kidman. Shailene Woodley and Alexander Skarsgard also starred and Jean-Marc Vallée directed.

Moriarty, Witherspoon, Kidman and Vallée all hinted backstage at the Emmys that a Season 2 was a strong possibility. The main obstacle had been the lack of source material as the novel was a one-off. But sources says Moriarty — who had acknowledged she had been approached by HBO and the producers about a second season — has written a short novella that picks up the story and envisions what happens next with the main characters.

As Deadline reported after the Emmys, David E. Kelley, who adapted Big Little Lies, was looking at the material, mulling a possible take, and that everyone was encouraged.
Once again, Reese makes a staggeringly stupid decision. Dropping out of Downsizing and this but making time for Hot Pursuit and Home Again. With Big Little Lies and Wild, you’d think she’d make better choices but nope.

Dan Stevens Joining Natalie Portman in Noah Hawley's 'Pale Blue Dot' (Exclusive)
3:10 PM PDT 5/10/2018 by Borys Kit , Mia Galuppo


Hawley is set to direct the Fox Searchlight drama about a married astronaut who begins an affair upon returning to Earth.

Dan Stevens will reteam with his Legion creator-showrunner Noah Hawley for the Fox Searchlight drama Pale Blue Dot.

The Beauty and the Beast star will join Natalie Portman, Jon Hamm and Zazie Beetz in the astronaut story that Hawley is set to direct.

Pale Blue Dot centers on a married astronaut (Portman) who returns to Earth after a mission and begins an affair with a fellow astronaut. She heads into a downward spiral as she loses her connection to her family — a condition that can afflict those who spend a long time in space — and when her lover begins another affair with an astronaut trainee, the bottom drops out.

Hamm is playing the fellow astronaut, while Beetz is the other point in the love triangle, the trainee.

Stevens will portray Portman's husband.

Brian C. Brown and Elliott DiGuiseppi wrote the script for the feature, which was inspired by a true-life astronaut love triangle in which a female mission specialist tried to kidnap a rival in 2007.

Stevens, who is repped by WME, the U.K.'s Julian Belfrage and Peikoff Mahan, is in the midst of his second season on Legion, Hawley's X-Men-based series on FX. He has Gareth Evans' Netflix drama Apostle in the can for a possible release later this year and this week joined Elisabeth Moss, Amber Heard and Cara Delevigne in the punk rock drama Her Smell.

A Sci-Fi movie directed by Noah Hawley - that's going to be a trippy encounter.

Shes milking it - taking braindead roles that require NO acting whatsoever and cashing a nice check. Thats fine, but lets not pretend its anything other than exactly that.

What a weird name change if they have no plans on making it Beatles related.

Damn, this looks good. The visuals in the trailer were beautiful and weird. Portman's one of my favorites, and Hamm has never even come close to letting me down. I love space films and psychological films.

This is one that I'm actually going to have to leave the house to see on a suitable screen. No waiting for the Blu-ray on this one. Nuh-uh.
