In Post-Production

Distant

Opens March 11, 2022

Not everyone who goes to space gets the glory. Some are just blue-collar guys like Andy Ramirez (Anthony Ramos, In the Heights, Hamilton), who hasn’t been trained for days like this.

A low-level mining engineer, Andy was aboard a transport ship that was struck by an asteroid, crash landing him on an unknown alien planet. With his oxygen running low and his AI survival suit (voiced by Zachary Quinto, Star Trek films) not helping, Andy’s only chance to get out of this alive is to find another survivor.

When he connects via radio to a fellow crew member, Naomi (Naomi Scott, Aladdin), Andy thinks his prayers are answered. That is, until he finds out Naomi is trapped inside her escape pod and he may not have enough oxygen to make it to her. Not to mention, alien creatures, Andy has yet to realize, will be stalking him every step of the way.

Distant, from DreamWorks Pictures, is directed by the filmmaking team of Josh Gordon and Will Speck (Blades of Glory, Office Christmas Party) from a script by Spenser Cohen (Extinction). The film is produced by Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (Midnight Special, executive producer Insidious franchise), Fred Berger (La La Land) and Anna Halberg (Extinction). Speck and Gordon also serve as executive producers along with Jonathan Rothbart and Matthew Hirsch. Kevin K. Vafi is co-producer. The film will be distributed by Universal Pictures domestically. Amblin Partners and Universal will share international distribution rights.
