Gabrielle Union and Tom Hopper join Emma Roberts’ ‘Space Cadet’

Houston, we have a set. Stampede Ventures’ gritty new comedy “Space Cadet” has added more star power to a fleet led by the previously announced Emma Roberts.

While character details are under wraps, Gabrielle Union will join Roberts in the film about a Florida party girl who turns out to be the only hope for NASA’s space program after a fluke puts her in training with other candidates. They may have better resumes, but not her intelligence, heart and energy. lic. W. Garcia is directing his own script, which we pray will feel like “Legally Blonde” in space.

Tom Hopper (“The Umbrella Academy,” “Love in the Vila”) also comes on board with Colombian pop star Sebastián Yatra (“The Voice Kids” from Spain), sketch veteran David Foley (“The Kids in the Hall”) and Desi Lydic (“The Daily Show”).

Production will start next week. Greg Silverman and Jon Berg will produce on behalf of Stampede Ventures, with Gideon Yu and Chris Bosco serving as executive producers. Emma Roberts, Garcia and Michael Tadross are also executive producers. CAA’s Sarah Schweitzman collaborates with Stampede’s Chris Bosco for available territories, including domestic.

Union just came off an acclaimed premiere at the Toronto Film Festival for his A24 project “The Inspection,” and recently wrapped the third season of Apple’s “Truth Be Told.” She is also producing and starring in “The Idea of ​​You” with Anne Hathaway. She is represented by CAA, Range Media Partners, Patti Felker and The Lede Company.

Hopper’s star has risen considerably in his time on the aforementioned Netflix originals. He recently starred alongside Sam Heughan, Ruby Rose and Andy Serkis in “SAS: Red Notice.” He is represented by The Gersh Agency, Entertainment 360, Waring McKenna Ltd., and Jackoway, Austen, Tyerman, Wertheimer, Mandelbaum, Morris, Bernstein, Trattner & Klein.

Yatra is a chart-topping singer-songwriter currently touring behind releases including “Tacones Rojos” from his multi-platinum album “Dharma” and “Dos Oruguitas” from Disney’s “Encanto.” He is represented by Paula Kaminsky.

Foley’s credits include “Sky High”, “A Bug’s Life”, “Toy Story 2”, “A Blast From the Past” and “South Park: Bigger and Longer”. He is represented by APA and Industry Entertainment. Lydic is best known for her work as a correspondent on “The Daily Show.” She is also Emmy nominated for the digital series “Desi Lydic Foxsplains.” She is represented by CAA, Underground, and Yorn, Levine, Barnes, Krintzman, Rubenstein, Kohner, Endlich & Gellman.
