Here Comes a Movie About How Playtex Designed the Apollo Spacesuit

Warner Bros. is now developing an adaptation of Spacesuit, Nicholas de Monchaux’s 2011 nonfiction book about “the unsung heroes of the Apollo space program — a team of bra and girdle designers from Playtex who successfully built the iconic spacesuit that enabled Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to walk on the moon.” The newly hired screenwriter is Richard Cordiner, an adman who got some Hollywood buzz with a script called The Shark Is Not Working, about the making of Jaws.
