Actress and filmmaker Julie Delpy will take on both roles in her next project entitled “The Skylab” for Films Distribution says Allocine.
The story is set in France in 1979 during the international media event when there was rampant fear that the decaying orbit of the defunct US space station would bring the structure crashing down on a populated area.
The action will follow a family gathering and waiting for Skylab to fall. Ultimately the structure broke up during re-entry and scattered debris over the barren deserts of western Australia.
Aure Atika, Noemie Lvovsky, Bernadette Lafon and Eric Elmosnino also star. Michael Gentile is producing and shooting kicks off June 1st in Normandy.
