Michael Peña, Carolina Bartczak, Maxim Roy and Stephen Bogaert are set to join the cast of Roland Emmerich’s sci-fi Moonfall. A-list stars such as Halle Berry, Patrick Wilson, John Bradley, Eme Ikwuakor, Charlie Plummer and Donald Sutherland will also be starring in the film. The space drama will be about a group of strangers who must come together after the Moon suddenly falls out of orbit around Earth. The team must head off to space leaving behind their life in order to protect the ones they love and to save the planet.
Stanley Tucci was originally set to star in Moonfall but had to exit due to government-imposed travel restriction banning UK flights to Canada. Pena will be stepping in to play Tom Lopez, a wealthy car dealer who is married to Brian Harper’s (Wilson) ex-wife, Brenda, who is being played by Bartczak.
Roy will play Gabriella Auclair, a tough army captain who will be helping the team save the world while Bogaert will play NASA Director Albert Hutchings. Peña will also be starring in Warner Bros. Tom & Jerry which will be released on HBO MX and in theaters on February 26.
Moonfall is set to hit the theaters in 2022.
