Lana Condor and Cole Sprouse star in an upcoming HBO Max original movie Moonshot. As a romantic comedy with a “sci-fi twist”, this film follows Condor’s character Sophie on a journey to Mars, who pursues her long-distance boyfriend living on the planet. Much to Sophie’s surprise, Sprouse’s character comes along for the ride illegally joining her mission to space.
The film is directed by Chris Winterbauer known for other films like Wyrm and Bald Love. Moonshot is the second film out of four promised in a deal between HBO Max and Berlanti-Schechter Films.
