‘The Astronaut’ – A Space Thriller with Kate Mara and Laurence Fishburne
In “The Astronaut,” Kate Mara will take on the role of Sam Walker, the eponymous astronaut. Sam miraculously survives a space disaster and is discovered alive in a capsule floating in the Atlantic Ocean.

As the story unfolds, a series of strange events lead Sam to suspect that something otherworldly may have returned with her from space. The film is set to commence shooting in Ireland next month, operating under an interim SAG-AFTRA agreement. It’s currently being presented by the Highland Film Group at the Toronto International Film Festival.
