Citing this story over at deadline.com, The Huntsville Times is reporting that actor Thomas Horn, star of the recently overlooked but fantastic film, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, has landed the role in the upcoming Space Camp movie.
USSRC CEO Deborah was quoted in the article as saying that the script for Space Warriors is “intellectual” and “quite good.”
That remains to be seen of course. Whether or not Space Warriors is any good shouldn’t matter too much though. Featuring Space Camp in any movie–even a bad one–is certainly good for publicity. After A Smile as Big as the Moon proved to be a good film both despite the fact and because it was filmed at Space Camp means Space Warriors has some pretty big shoes to fill.
Filming starts soon.
