Here's an interesting premise for a film: a space assassin wakes up floating aimlessly through space. Unaware of how he got there, his only company is a robot voice programmed to turn off once his human companion runs out of oxygen...
It's called Spaceless, and it's the next project from Jane Eyre director Cary Fukunaga.
Fukunaga has closed his deal to shoot the dark scifi drama for Universal. Here's the official run-down from THR:
The story centres on an assassin who wakes up inside a spacesuit tumbling helplessly through space, with a computer designed to keep him company until his air runs out. He must try to solve the mystery of his death, which began when he broke into an orbiting space station to carry out a hit. The man, however, begins to question his reality, unsure if he is succumbing to madness or in an artificially created environment.
Sounds like a darker Moon — if that's humanly possible (also with more funding). Either way, we loved what we saw from Fukunaga in Jane Eyre, so we're excited to see what he can conjure up in the way of dark space loneliness.
