Deadline is reporting that Netflix has acquired the distribution rights to Stowaway, a sci-fi thriller from director Joe Penna (Arctic) which stars Anna Kendrick (Noelle), Toni Collette (Hereditary), Daniel Dae Kim (Hellboy) and Shamier Anderson (Wynonna Earp).
Scripted by Penna and his Arctic co-writer Ryan Morrison, Stowaway “charts how, on a mission to Mars, an unintended stowaway (Anderson) by chance causes extreme injury to the spaceship’s life-support techniques. Going through dwindling assets and a doubtlessly grim consequence, a medical researcher (Kendrick) emerges as the one dissenting voice towards the scientific logic of each her commander (Collette) and the ship’s biologist (Kim).”
Stowaway is predicted to premiere on Netflix in some unspecified time in the future in 2021.
