“The film will raise the question if we should really project our hopes into our galaxy, believing that there might be a place out there that might shelter us humans once the resources of the earth have been exhausted,” Rudolph said. “I’m looking forward to going on a quest with Werner to find the answer.”
The father and son duo have previously worked together on Werner’s Invincible from 2002 and on his 2013 film Happy People: A Year in the Taiga. Last Exit: Space will be their first collaboration with Rudolph in the director’s seat.
“When you get the chance to work with masterful creators like Werner and Rudolph, you take it and thank your lucky stars,” said Jake Hanly, VP of acquisitions at Gunpowder & Sky. “Exploring uncharted territory and shedding light on the new and unknown is part of Gunpowder & Sky’s genetic makeup. And, with the Herzogs at the helm, we can hardly wait to invite space enthusiasts and dreamers alike to join us to the farthest reaches of the universe.”
