Netflix's upcoming sci-fi drama ‘Spaceman’ has officially wrapped up filming in the Czech Republic this Thursday (July 1st). The movie started the shoot in the country last month after finishing the first leg in New York City.
Directed by Johan Renck, written by Colby Day based on a novel by Jaroslav Kalfar, the film has a star-studded cast that includes Adam Sandler, Paul Dano, Carey Mulligan, Kunal Nayyar from The Big Bang Theory, Isabella Rossellini, and Sinead Phelps from Carnival Row. Rossellini recently joined the cast of the film.
“The obligatory, Spaceman, ITS A WRAP tearful-shout-out,” said Renck after the production wrap. “Endless love to Adam Sandler, Carey Mulligan, Paul Dano, Kunal Nayyar, Isabella Rossellini.

Spaceman is based on the 2017 novel Spaceman of Bohemia by Jaroslav Kalfar and follows Jakub Procházka (Adam Sandler), the first independent Czech Republic's astronaut. He is sent on a solo space mission to investigate a cloud of "intergalactic dust" near Venus that no other government is willing to risk sending its citizens to investigate. He leaves behind his wife (Carey Mulligan) for this 8-month mission. While alone, he turns to the one person who can help him try to put things back together. It just so happens to belong to a creature (arachnid named Hanuš) from the beginning of time who lurks in the shadows of his ship. Jakub is so desperate to get away from his past that he is willing to travel hundreds of millions of miles to do so.
Producers of the film include Channing Tatum, Peter Kiernan, Reid Carolin, and Michael Parets for Free Association. Michael Parets will oversee for Free Association; Lia Buman, Tim Headington, and Max Silva for Tango Entertainment. Executive producers include Ben Ormand, Johan Renck, and Barry Bernardi. Johan Renck's credits include HBO's hit series Chernobyl.
‘Spaceman’ will arrive straight to Netflix in 2022, globally.
