Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle and Hollywood star Ryan Gosling have teamed up again after their smash hit La La Land, this time working together of a biopic that follows the life of Neil Armstrong and the intensive decade of training he went through before the first ever manned mission to the moon.
Despite Armstrong undoubtably being one of the most famous men in history, no one has ever made a biopic about him. According to Chazelle, this is because of the astronauts private nature. “A lot of the other astronauts and pilots of that era were what you expect, the outgoing, hotshot types, but Neil was very different,” said Chazelle when speaking to People. “He was the brainier, quieter, more introverted person and he’s a man of few words who did the job and got it done.”
Co-stars in the film include Claire Foy, Kyle Chandler, Jon Bernthal, Jason Clarke and Ethan Embry and release is set for 12 October.
