The Hollywood Reporter is exclusively reporting that Patrick Wilson and Charlie Plummer are the latest names to join the cast of 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.
Patrick Wilson (whose recent credits include Aquaman and Midway) will be playing the role of a disgraced former NASA astronaut whose last mission, which ended in tragedy, holds a clue about the impending catastrophe. Charlie Plummer (whose credits include All The Money In The World and Looking For Alaska) will be playing the role of Wilson’s teenage son.
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.
