Prime Video and Stampede Ventures have unveiled the first-look photo for their upcoming Amazon original movie titled Space Cadet, with Emma Roberts expected to lead the project. The photo offers us our first preview at Roberts’ character Rex, a party girl who suddenly finds herself participating in a NASA space program.
Space Cadet is written and directed by Liz W. Garcia (The Lifeguard). Joining Roberts are Poppy Liu (Hacks), Gabrielle Union (Bad Boys II), Tom Hopper (The Umbrella Academy), Colombian pop star Sebastián Yatra, David Foley (The Kids in the Hall), and Desi Lydic (Awkward).
“The film follows Florida party girl Rex (Emma Roberts), who turns out to be the only hope for the NASA space program after a fluke puts her in training with other candidates who may have better resumes, but don’t have her smarts, heart, and nerve,” reads the synopsis.
Additional cast members include Kuhoo Verma (Plan B), Yasha Jackson (The Flight Attendant), Troy Iwata (WeCrashed), Andrew Call (Z: The Beginning of Everything), and Josephine Huang.
Space Cadet is produced by Greg Silverman and Jon Berg along with Stampede Pictures. Executive producers are Gideon Yu, Chris Bosco, Emma Roberts, Liz W. Garcia, and Michael Tadross. It will launch exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide outside the U.S. and Japan.
