Sci-Fi thriller Stowaway welcomes Daniel Dae Kim aboard
Stowaway has just landed another passenger. The upcoming sci-fi thriller has cast Daniel Dae Kim, per a report from Deadline. Kim will play the ship’s biologist and will be starring alongside Toni Collette and Anna Kendrick.
On a mission headed to Mars, an unintended stowaway accidentally causes severe damage to the spaceship’s life support systems. Facing dwindling resources and a potentially grim outcome, a medical researcher emerges as the only dissenting voice against the clinical logic of both her commander and the ship’s biologist.
The film will be directed by former YouTube star Joe Penna, who penned the script with longtime collaborator Ryan Morrison. The two previously worked together on the survival thriller Arctic, which starred Mads Mikkelsen. The film is slated for a theatrical release in 2019 after screening at the Cannes Film Festival.
XYZ Films will be producing Stowaway alongside RISE Pictures and augenschein Filmproduktion.
Kim is known for a variety of roles, including ABC’s Lost and CBS’s Hawaii Five-0 reboot, as well as on the big screen in Hellboy, The Cave, Insurgent and Mirai. He’ll also co-star in the upcoming Netflix film Always Be My Maybe with Ali Wong, Randall Park and Keanu Reeves.
Principal photography on Stowaway is slated to begin June 11 in Germany.
