A biopic of Neil Armstrong is coming in October, called “First Man”. It looks like the creative team is doing everything right. This could be really good.
“Jim and I have been spending a lot of time putting together an annotated script,” said Singer. “This is a book that will be published with the movie, and not only will it showcase beautiful stills from the film, which does look gorgeous, but beyond that we want to be very clear about what we fictionalized and when we diverged why it was we made that choice.”
After reviewing an early version of the script, Neil Armstrong’s elder son told the filmmakers behind Universal’s “First Man” that, when it came to portraying his father’s astronaut career, “you mess with canonical history at your own peril.”
