Carey Mulligan To Join Adam Sandler In Netflix’s ‘Spaceman’

From Promising Young Woman to outer-space, Carey Mulligan’s career is hitting new heights. Deadline is reporting that Mulligan has joined Adam Sandler in Netflix’s Spaceman. The project was originally called The Spaceman Of Bohemia. 

Based on Jaroslav Kalfar’s novel of the same name, the film will follow an astronaut (Sandler) “sent to the edge of the galaxy to collect mysterious ancient dust. He soon finds his earthly life falling to pieces, and he turns to the only voice who can help him try to put it back together. It just so happens to belong to a creature from the beginning of time lurking in the shadows of his ship.” Mulligan is set to play Sandler’s wife. John Renck, the gentleman responsible for Chernobyl is directing.

This announcement comes at the heels of Mulligan’s SNL debut and award nominations for Promising Young Woman. She is nominated for her second Academy Award. The Oscars will air on ABC on April 25th.
