Los Angeles, Dec 30 (IANS) Actor Ryan Gosling will join hands with his “La La Land” director Damien Chazelle to star in the upcoming film “First Man”, a biopic on the life of Neil Armstrong, the astronaut who became the first man to set foot on the Moon.
Chazelle will direct the film from a script by Josh Singer.
According to sources, the film will go on floors in early 2017, reports hollywoodreporter.com.
The film will be based on James Hansen’s biography “First Man: A Life Of Neil A. Armstrong” and tell the story of NASA’s mission to land a man on the Moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the years 1961-1969.
A visceral, first-person account, the movie will explore the sacrifices and the cost — on Armstrong and on US — of one of the most dangerous space missions in history.
