Naomi Scott had quite the breakout performance as Princess Jasmine in the 2019 live-action adaptation of Aladdin. The film wasn’t exactly a hit with the critics but it made over $1 billion at the box office, so we’d call that a huge success.
And now we are learning what Scott’s next project will be. According to reports, she’ll star alongside Hamilton’s Anthony Ramos in the upcoming comedic sci-fi film, Distant.
The film tells the story of an asteroid miner who, after crash-landing on an alien planet, must contend with the challenges of his new surroundings, while making his way across the harsh terrain to the only other survivor – a woman who is trapped in her escape pod.
Rachel Brosnahan (from The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) was set to star in the film, but she had to pull out due to a scheduling conflict.
The directors behind ‘Blades of Gory‘ will direct the script, which was written by Spenser Cohen.
No word on a potential release date, but we’ll keep you posted.
