Carey Mulligan shone in her hosting debut on Saturday Night Live this past weekend. Following her path through sketch comedy, the Promising Young Woman actress will star alongside Adam Sandler, an all-time SNL favorite, in a new Netflix film. The Oscar nominee was recently cast in a pivotal role in the science-fiction film Spaceman. It’s a pairing that looks like it belongs among the stars.
Since October, Adam Sandler has been attached to the lead role of Spaceman, but now he’ll have competition in the form of the talented British actress who is expected to win an Oscar for her performance in Emerald Fennell’s dark comedy, Promising Young Woman. Mulligan will play the wife of Sandler’s astronaut character in Spaceman, according to Deadline.
Adam Sandler’s relationship with Netflix continues with Spaceman, where he has previously found success with films such as Hubie Halloween and Murder Mystery. Though this project appears to stray from Sandler’s signature ensemble slapstick comedies, he is well-known for his work on the streaming site. The film Spaceman will be based on Jaroslav Kalfar’s 2017 novel Spaceman of Bohemia.
