Oscar-winning director, Damien Chazelle, is back on set with Hollywood heart-throb Ryan Gosling, for a Neil Armstrong biopic, First Man, which started filming early 2017.

The La La Land Oscar-nominee, Gosling, will portray the late Armstrong, who died in 2012, in the astronaut’s legendary life from 1961, before his mission, up until 1969, when his journey is complete. The film will explore the sacrifices made by Armstrong himself, and the Nation, throughout one of the most dangerous, but epic, missions in space travel history.

Chazelle, who became the Oscar’s youngest, winning director after his win this year for La La Land, will be directing his first non-music based film, and first film to not also be written by himself.

Instead, Oscar-winning writer, Josh Singer (Spotlight), will be adapting his screenplay from the official Neil Armstrong biography, First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong, written by James R. Hansen.

The film is set for release on 12th October 2018 (according to IMDb).
