Witherspoon To Star, Produce “Pale Blue Dot”

Reese Witherspoon is attached to star and produce in the astronaut drama “Pale Blue Dot” for Fox Searchlight.

Written by Brian C. Brown and Elliott DiGuiseppi, the story follows a married astronaut who returns to Earth after a mission and begins an affair with a fellow astronaut.

She heads into a downward spiral as she loses her connection to her family, and when her lover begins another affair with an astronaut trainee, the bottom drops out.

Bruna Papandrea will also produce the film which is said to be inspired by a true-life astronaut love triangle in which a female mission specialist tried to kidnap a rival in 2007.
