FIRST MAN – Directed by Damien Chazelle
The Life of Neil Armstrong (played by Ryan Gosling)
This is the confirmed cast so far. The last addition is Jon Bernthal.
Claire Foy will play Janet Shearon, Armostrong’s wife.
The movie will start principal photography in Atlanta in Fall and will be released in Us cinemas on October 12, 2018.
In an interview this is what Damien said about the movie:
The tone is somewhat dark. We’re approaching it as a thriller to try to get at how insane and death-defying everything was.
We live in a world now where we take it for granted that people did that in the ‘60s in these kinds of fly-by-wire machines before modern computers were even a thing, that we somehow sent people off to the moon and had them come back.
It’s trying to get at the psychology of what it takes to do something like that – the near-crazy mentality you have to have to be Neil Armstrong, to be the first man on the Moon.
