Stanley Tucci and John Bradley (“Game of Thrones”) will star alongside Halle Berry, Patrick Wilson, and Charlie Plummer in “Moonfall”, from director/screenwriter Roland Emmerich.
Per the Deadline news, “Moonfall” is set off by a mysterious force that knocks the Moon from its orbit around Earth and sends it hurtling on a collision course with life as we know it. With mere weeks before impact, and against all odds, a ragtag team launches an impossible last-ditch mission into space, leaving behind everyone they love and risking everything to land on the lunar surface and save our planet from annihilation.
Emmerich has previously described the film as a mix between “2012” and “Independence Day”, but without the extraterrestrial element.
Tucci will play Tom Phillips, a wealthy car dealer, who’s married to Brian Harper’s (Wilson) ex-wife, while Bradley is KC Houseman, an eccentric and unkempt genius who discovers that the moon has fallen out of its orbit.
