Prime Video has unveiled the first official look of Emma Roberts in the new movie, Space Cadet. The film, which is written and directed by Liz W. Garcia (Purple Hearts), follows a Florida party girl named Rex (Roberts), who “turns out to be the only hope for the NASA space program after a fluke puts her in training with other candidates who may have better resumes, but don’t have her smarts, heart, and nerve. “
Along with releasing the first look at Roberts’ Rex, Prime Video also confirmed the supporting cast. Joining Roberts are Poppy Liu (Hacks), Gabrielle Union (L.A.’s Finest), Tom Hopper (The Umbrella Academy), Colombian pop star Sebastián Yatra, David Foley (The Kids in the Hall), and Desi Lydic (Awkward). Also appearing in the film are Kuhoo Verma (Plan B), Yasha Jackson (The Flight Attendant), Troy Iwata (Dash & Lily), Andrew Call (Z: The Beginning of Everything), and Josephine Huang.
Space Cadet is being produced by Stampede Ventures, Greg Silverman, and Jon Berg. Executive producing the project are Gideon Yu, Chris Bosco, Emma Roberts, Liz W. Garcia, and Michael Tadross. Set to launch on Prime Video in over 240 countries sometime next year, Space Cadet does not yet have a release date.
