With his work on Fargo and Legion, Noah Hawley is an interesting voice in filmmaking. Having only really had a hand in helming television shows, feature filmmaking is kind of a whole new world for him, and I’m eager to see his trademark weird and surreal style make its way to the big screen. His feature directorial debut is none other than Lucy in the Sky.

This is an original project that was inspired by the real-life astronaut Lisa Nowak, who was caught in a love triangle that ended in an attempted murder. Again, it’s just inspired by, so it’s not clear which aspects of her story will actually make it to the silver screen, but if the trailer is any indication, it’ll be quite the interesting one to watch.

Below is the official synopsis for Lucy in the Sky:

“In LUCY IN THE SKY, Natalie Portman plays Lucy Cola, a strong woman whose determination and drive as an astronaut take her to space, where she’s deeply moved by the transcendent experience of seeing her life from afar.  Back home as Lucy’s world suddenly feels too small, her connection with reality slowly unravels.”

If nothing else, it looks like a tense ride that seems destined for a self-destructive explosion. I’m totally down. You?
