While specific details of the plot cannot yet be revealed, the film investigates the truth behind the CIA's involvement in the space race. Here's what director Matt Johnson had to say in a statement.
"The CIA, the 1960's and the space program have always been obsessions of mine. Working with partners like Lionsgate, who understand the scope and vision of what we are creating, has been a pleasure. This movie is going to leave audiences with a powerful and imaginative interpretation of what may or may not have happened within the walls of the US's top government agencies."
The deal for the North American rights was negotiated by Johnson's agents Mark Ankner and Rich Cook (WME) and attorney Chris Spicer (Akin Gump), alongside XYZ's Nate Bolotin.
