Actor Ryan Gosling will reportedly be stepping into the shoes of late astronaut Neil Armstrong in “First Man”, a biopic to be directed by Damien Chazelle.
The film will be written by Josh Singer, reports ew.com.
Adapted from James Hansen’s biography of Armstrong, the project is still in the writing process. It would reunite Gosling and Chazelle, who are currently shooting the musical “La La Land”, also featuring actress Emma Stone.
“First Man” will be based on the historical Apollo 11 mission that resulted in Armstrong being the first human to set foot on the moon.
