Roland Emmerich’s latest disaster, er, film – sorry, “Independence Day : Resurgence” fans – has nabbed Disney lad Josh Gad for a role.
The “Frozen” fave fixes into a plot that sees the moon knocked from its orbit by a mysterious force and is on a collision course with Earth. Life as we know it hangs in the balance and with just weeks to go before impact, a ragtag team is sent on a seemingly impossible mission to land on the lunar surface and save humanity.
Gad, who has spent the lockdown doing these cool ‘Reunited Apart’ videos, will play ”KC Houseman in “Moonfall”, described by the filmmakers as odd and unkempt in a way that suggests a high level of intelligence and an equally high level of disorganization. He is a genius who correctly predicts that the moon has fallen out of its orbit, thus making the space-obsessed, profoundly unfiltered and eccentric man one of the most important people on Earth.”
Lionsgate, who distributed Emmerich’s “Midway” in the U.S, has the same role on this own.
