Universal Pictures has acquired Too Far From Home, a Chris Jones book about three astronauts who were stranded on the International Space Station for 100 days in 2003.
Working Title partners Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner will produce with Elizabeth Banks and Max Handelman.
Banks will next be seen in Spider-Man 3 and the upcoming Fred Claus and Starship Dave. Handelman came from Wall Street and News Corp.
Jones’ book, based on his Esquire article, was published by Random House in March.
