Xyz Films and CAA Media Finance are arranging financing for the film, and handling worldwide sales at Cannes.
The pic’s action takes place on a mission to Mars, where a stowaway (Anderson) accidentally causes severe damage to the spaceship’s life support systems. Facing dwindling resources and a potentially grim outcome, a medical researcher (Kendrick) emerges as the only dissenting voice against the clinical logic of both her commander (Collette) and the ship’s biologist (Kim).
“Stowaway” will be co-written by Penna and Morrison, who will also serve as executive producer and editor.
Xyz will produce alongside Augenschein Filmproduktion,
