Directed by the versatile Greg Berlanti and scripted by Rose Gilroy, “Fly Me to the Moon” is set against the historic backdrop of NASA’s moon landing. Central characters include marketing wiz Kelly Jones (Scarlett Johansson) and launch director Cole Davis (Channing Tatum).

Jones, who is brought in to revamp NASA’s public image, creates waves as she intersects with Davis.

This sets off a countdown of high stakes, tension, and uncertainty.

The film also features performances from actors like Nick Dillenburg, Anna Garcia, Jim Rash, Noah Robbins, Colin Woodell, Christian Zuber, Donald Elise Watkins, Ray Romano, and Woody Harrelson.

Director’s Vision for the Film

In a recent interview with People, director Greg Berlanti disclosed the vision behind the film. “The idea was to create an original, smart, and entertaining movie centered on one of the most iconic events in history – the Apollo 11 moon landing,” said Berlanti. He added that the film also explores the intriguing idea of whether the American government could have staged the moon landing, a question which has since sparked numerous conspiracy theories.

Berlanti, renowned for producing TV shows like “Riverdale,” “Superman & Lois,” and films like “Life as We Know It,” “Love, Simon,” offers a fresh take on the enigma surrounding the Apollo 11 mission.
