Deadline reports that Carey Mulligan has joined Adam Sandler’s Amazon film adaptation of Jarsolav Kalfar’s The Spaceman of Bohemia with the film now titled The Spaceman. Mulligan will play Sandler’s wife. Johan Renck will direct the film, which follows an astronaut (Sandler) who is searching for ancient space dust as his life is falling apart, leading him to seek counsel from a hidden creature on his ship. Though the synopsis may sound comedic and goofy, the tale is a dramatic one hot on the heels of Sandler’s incredible performance in Uncut Gems.
