Naomi Scott to feature in sci-fi film Distant
Filmmakers Will Speck and Josh Gordon, known for Blades of Glory, will direct from a script written by Spenser Cohen
Naomi Scott, known for her role in Aladdin, is set to star in an upcoming sci-fi movie titled Distant. Scott is joining the Amblin Partners' project after Rachel Brosnahan, attached to The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, exited citing scheduling conflicts amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
The film is said to be about an asteroid miner who accidentally lands on a foreign planet. Filmmakers Will Speck and Josh Gordon, known for Blades of Glory, will direct from a script written by Spenser Cohen.
Also starring Hamilton-fame Anthony Ramos, Distant will be produced by Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Fred Berger and Anna Halberg. Details about Naomi Scott's character in the film are yet to be revealed.
Scott made her film debut in Lionsgate’s 2017 Power Rangers reboot and rose to fame with her role as Princess Jasmine in Disney’s hit live-action film Aladdin last year.
