Jon Hamm is teaming up with Natalie Portman for Pale Blue Dot!
Jon Hamm is in negotiations to star opposite Natalie Portman in Fox Searchlight’s “Pale Blue Dot,” sources tell Variety.
“Fargo” and “Legion” creator Noah Hawley is directing from a script by Brian C. Brown and Elliott DiGuiseppi. Reese Witherspoon, who was attached to star at one point, will produce with Bruna Papandrea.
“Pale Blue Dot” follows a successful female astronaut who, after coming back home from a mission in space, starts to unravel when confronted by her seemingly perfect life. The film explores the theory that astronauts who spend long periods of time in space lose their sense of reality when they return home.
Hamm will play Portman’s fellow astronaut who she aggressively pursues after returning to Earth.
