Damien Chazelle's upcoming biopic follows NASA's quest to land on the moon during 1961-1969, and will focus on the harrowing events that transpired during NASA's Gemini 8 mission led by Commanding Pilot, Neil Armstrong (Ryan Gosling) and Pilot Dave Scott (Jon Bernthal).
In addition to Gosling, Foy, and Bernthal, First Man's all-star ensemble includes Kyle Chandler as NASA's Chief Engineer Deke Slayton, Corey Stoll as Buzz Aldrin - the second man to walk on the moon following Neil, and Jason Clarke as Ed White - the first American to walk in space.
First Man marks the first directorial project in which Chazelle will direct from a script that's written by someone other than the 33-year-old Oscar-winner. Those honors go to Oscar-winner Josh Singer (Spotlight) who adapted the screenplay based on James Hansen’s biography “First Man: A Life Of Neil A. Armstrong”. According to Singer, First Man is a "mission movie" seen through "the eyes of the guy" who got to the moon (h/t Collider):
❝This is 100 percent a mission movie. It’s about going to the moon as seen through the eyes of the guy who got there,” Singer tells the Boston Globe. “We have at least five major set pieces that are action, and if your heart rate doesn’t go through the roof, if you’re not gripping the edge of your seat the entire times, I’ll be shocked.❞
Can you smell 2019 Oscars? First Man will land in theaters on October 12, 2018. Stay tuned for the trailer!
