The Hollywood Reporter is exclusively reporting that Josh Gad is set to star in Roland Emmerich’s upcoming disaster thriller Moonfall.
Moonfall focuses on the moon being knocked from its orbit by a mysterious force and is on a collision course with Earth. Life as we know it hangs in the balance and with just weeks to go before impact, a ragtag team is launched into a seemingly impossible mission to land on the lunar surface and save humanity.
Josh Gad (whose credits include Little Monsters and Frozen 2) will be playing the role of KC Houseman, an odd and unkempt figure, a genius who correctly predicts that the moon has fallen out of its orbit, thus making the space-obsessed, profoundly unfiltered and eccentric man one of the most important people on Earth.
The film is written by Roland Emmerich, Harald Kloser and Spenser Cohen, with Emmerich producing under his Centropolis banner and Harald Kloser under his Street Entertainment banner.
