Stampede Ventures adds Gabrielle Union (The Inspection, Bad Boys II), Tom Hopper (The Umbrella Academy, Love in the Villa), Columbian Pop Star Sebastián Yatra, David Foley (The Kids in the Hall, A Bug’s Life), and Desi Lydic (The Daily Show, Awkward) to its feature comedy Space Cadet.
As previously announced, Liz. W. Garcia (The Lifeguard) will direct from her
script, starring Emma Roberts (Holidate, Madame Web).
As previously announced, Prime Video has also boarded as the international digital distributor, with the movie set to launch exclusively on Prime Video internationally. Stampede Ventures will finance, with Prime Video licensing international territories, outside of the U.S. and Japan.
The film follows a Florida party girl (Roberts), who turns out to be the only hope for the NASA space program after a fluke puts her in training with other candidates who may have better resumes, but don’t have her smarts, heart, and moxie.
Greg Silverman and Jon Berg will produce on behalf of Stampede Ventures,
with Stampede Ventures’ Gideon Yu and Chris Bosco as executive producers. Emma Roberts, Liz W. Garcia, and Michael Tadross are also executive producers.
Space Cadet starts production this Monday, September 26th.
