There certainly seems to be a theme of loneliness in space floating around at the moment, especially between the likes of The Martian (2015), Passengers and Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) and Olga Kurylenko's (Oblivion) new project Android. And now there is Sovereign, with news arriving via Deadline that Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Inception) will be a man on a mission.
Sovereign will see Gordon-Levitt as a man whose marriage has fallen apart. When he learns that his wife and the crew of the space station she was aboard have vanished, he goes looking for her. But as he explores the seemingly deserted ship, he finds the truth about why she has gone missing and has to confront his own feelings and role in losing her love.
Marc Munden, who won plaudits for Channel 4's recent drama National Treasure, is aboard to make the movie, and has brought in National Treasure screenwriter Jack Thorne to take a crack at the script that was originally by Geoff Tock and Gregory Weidman (Limitless).
Gordon-Levitt will next be seen in Oliver Stone's (Savages) Snowden, finally making its way here on 2 December. He is also developing a number of projects, including a Fraggle Rock movie and a musical with Channing Tatum (21 Jump Street).
