Space, which is having a bit of a come back right now (see Space Between Us, Passengers, Hidden Figures), gets to welcome another handsome movie  actor in the upcoming Sovereign. Deadline reports that Joseph Gorden-Levitt will star as a man investigating a space station after the ship's full crew mysteriously disappears. Among those lost space explorers is the estranged wife of Gordon-Levitt's character, which leads us to hope that this sci-fi thriller is actually something of a Gone-Girl-meets-NASA situation with some weird alien aspects thrown in. British writer Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, This Is England) was hired to rewrite the script.
