    It doesn't say if this is a comedy, but with Adam Sandler involved it's
    bound to be hopeless drivel.

    Carey Mulligan joins Adam Sandler in Netflix's Spaceman movie
    According to Deadline, Oscar nominee Carey Mulligan has
    officially signed on to star opposite Adam Sandler in
    Netflix's upcoming film adaptation titled Spaceman, based on
    Jaroslav Kalfar's 2017 novel Spaceman of Bohemia. Mulligan
    will be playing the wife of Sandler's astronaut. This project
    marks the acclaimed actress' latest collaboration with
    streamer after working together on 2017's Mudbound and the
    most recently released drama film, The Dig.

    Mulligan's notable film credits include An Education, Never
    Let Me Go, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, Drive, The Great
    Gatsby, Suffragette, and Wildlife. For her leading
    performance in Emerald Fennell's black comedy thriller
    Promising Young Woman,  she earned her second Golden Globe
    nomination for Best Actress and is also currently nominated
    for an Academy Award for Best Actress.

    Spaceman centers on an astronaut sent to the edge of the
    galaxy to collect mysterious ancient dust but instead finds
    his earthly life falling to pieces and must turn to one
    voice to help him put it back together, which happens to
    belong to a creature from the beginning of time lurking in
    his ship.

    Emmy-wining filmmaker Johan Renck (Chernobyl) will be
    directing from a screenplay written by Colby Day. The film
    adaptation will be produced by Channing Tatum, Reid Carolin,
    Peter Kiernan and Michael Parets for Free Association, with
    Parets overseeing for the banner while Tim Headington, Lia
    Buman and Max Silva will oversee for Tango Entertainment.
    Finally, Ben Ormand, Renck and Barry Bernadi are set to
    executive produce.

    Sandler currently has a major multi-film deal in place with
    Netflix, which has delivered such hits as Murder Mystery and 
    Hubie Halloween. He is also currently working on another
    project with the streamer which is a sports comedy film
    titled Hustle. The film will be led by Sandler and Queen

    It actually says Adam Is Under Contract, whether then for the
    promotional curiously to veer off into pumping-up his costar (for
    whatever else she may be). Certainly an odd construct, although I'm
    Born Again with the revised opinion of Adam's capability, at least,
    for more than just drivel. (Not that I'd care argue he may do no more
    than to drivel, in this instance, being myself insufferably fond of
    scifi abuses.)
